Primary processes in photosynthesis by Martin David Kamen( Book )

25 editions published between 1963 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 893 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few phenomena in natural science equal photosynthesis in sweep and grandeur. It suffices to cite as evidence the annual yield of organic matter from photosynthesis, which is estimated to be between 10¹⁰ and 10¹¹ tons--an amount equivalent to the weight of metropolitan New York City [circa 1963]. Photosynthesis begins in the recesses of radiation physics and ends in the far reaches of ecology. A simple, if noncommittal definition, may provide a place to begin: photosynthesis is a series of processes in which electromagnetic energy is converted to chemical free energy which can be used for biosynthesis. Welcome to nature's most amazing phenomenon
Isotopic tracers in biology; an introduction to tracer methodology by Martin David Kamen( Book )

61 editions published between 1957 and 1965 in 3 languages and held by 699 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This edition of Isotopic Tracers in Biology focuses on stable isotopes, structures, composition, and reactions of nitrogen and oxygen, and radioactive tracers. The book first takes a look at atomic nuclei, radioactivity, and the production of radioactive isotopes and radiation characteristics of tracer atoms. Topics include nuclear reactions, general properties of nuclei, radioactivity, target techniques, and radiochemistry, and beta and gamma radiations. The text also discusses isotopic assay, radiation hazards, procedures related with sample preparation for radioactive assay, and combustion of labeled materials. The manuscript examines the biochemical, physiological, and medical aspects of tracer methodology, as well as biochemical applications, value of tracer methods for biology, intermediary metabolism, and applications to clinical research. The text also ponders on the isotopes of hydrogen, carbon, oxygen, nitrogen, phosphorus, and sulfur. Concerns include assay of deuterium and tritium, short-lived and heavy stable carbon, and oxygen, nitrogen, sulfur, and phosphorus isotopes. The publication is a dependable reference for readers interested in isotopic tracers
Radioactive tracers in biology, an introduction to tracer methodology by Martin David Kamen( Book )

46 editions published between 1947 and 1959 in English and Undetermined and held by 544 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Radioactive Tracers in Biology: An Introduction to Trace Methodology, Second Edition focuses on the biochemical and physiological aspects of tracer research, including medical applications of tracer techniques, radioactivity, radiation hazards, and radioactive isotopes. The book first offers information on atomic nuclei, radioactivity, and the production of radioactive isotopes and radiation characteristics of tracer atoms. Discussions focus on nuclear reactions, neutron-induced and deuteron-induced transmutations, properties of atomic nuclei, and target techniques and radiochemistry. The man
