Bioorganic chemistry

Bioorganic chemistry

Bioorganic chemistry is a rapidly growing scientific discipline which combines organic chemistry and biochemistry. While biochemistry aims at understanding biological processes using chemistry, bioorganic chemistry attempts to expand organic-chemical researches (that is, structures, synthesis, and kinetics) toward biology. When investigating metalloenzymes and cofactors, bioorganic chemistry overlaps bioinorganic chemistry. Biophysical organic chemistry is a term used when attempting to describe intimate details of molecular recognition by bioorganic chemistry. [Nelson J. Leonard, [ Bioorganic chemistry-a scientific endeavour in continuous transition] Pure & Appl. Chem., Vol. 66, No. 4, pp. 659-662.]
