Practical Kinetics and Mechanisms of Chemical and Enzymatic Reactions

This book describes fundamental mechanisms in both chemistry and biology, in order to present up-to-date catalytic pathways and molecular features of a series of “hot” enzymes including cytochromes P450, peroxidases, laccases, oxidases, dehydrogenases, kinases and phosphatases. The text will allow the reader to learn quickly how to solve kinetic and mechanistic problems in chemistry, biochemistry and enzymology. Its accessible style will assist young and more experienced scientists in presenting with confidence their kinetic and mechanistic results in modern high-impact chemical and biochemical journals even without significant previous experience in such studies.


Alexander D. Ryabov was educated at Moscow State University, where he obtained a PhD in 1979 and his DSc for studies of mechanisms of the formation and conversion of palladacycles in 1988. He was a Full Professor at the Departments of Chemistry of Moscow State University and G. V. Plekhanov Institute of National Economy, Russia until 2000, when he moved to Carnegie Mellon University, USA, to apply his kinetic and mechanistic skills to advance TAML activators. He currently holds a distinguished life appointment as a Research Leader in the Institute for Green Science and the Department of Chemistry at Carnegie Mellon University. He is the author of over 220 publications on chemistry, catalysis, enzymology and biochemistry.
