The Photosynthesis of Carbon Compounds
by Melvin Calvin, James Alan Bassham
Publisher: W.A. Benjamin 1962
Number of pages: 156
In this book we review the evidence leading to the formulation of the carbon reduction cycle and discuss its quantitative importance. We describe as far as possible the biosynthetic pathways which we believe exist in the chloroplast. We show how newly reduced carbon from the carbon reduction cycle provides the starting material for these pathways. Our objective is to map complete synthetic sequences from carbon dioxide to final products.

Nucleosides are the fundamental components of genetic material, present in all living organisms, and in viruses. By virtue of their ubiquity, they are highly important biomolecules. Nucleosides consist of a heterocyclic aglycone and a sugar unit ...

The subject of reaction kinetics includes analysis of how fast reactions occur, the predictions of concentrations of reactants and products and how reactions can be altered by changing conditions. The book introduces the concept of reaction kinetics.
