BCH 341 Textbooks

There are numerous books that cover physical chemistry with a biological focus.  I will not attempt to provide an exhaustive list, but rather focus on the books I find most useful and the books used most by Prof. Jeff Yarger.

The primary textbook used in BCH 341 for Fall 2018 semester is:

tinocoI. Tinoco, K. Sauer, J. Wang, J. Puglisi, G. Harbison, D. Rovnyak, Physical Chemistry: Principles and Applications in Biological Sciences, 5th Ed., Pearson,. 2013. 


A secondary book used in BCH 341 is one written by a colleague at ASU, Prof. James P. Allen titled ‘Biophysical Chemistry’.  This books is FREE in PDF format for all ASU students and hardcopies are available from Amazon or related online bookstores.  A link to the ASU Library version for ASU Students is provided here:
