The structure of amino acids and peptides is becoming increasingly important to chemists because of the growing overlap of mainstream organic chemistry with bio-organic and bimochemistry. This introductory text begins with a brief survey of the role and diversity of amino acids, peptides and proteins in nature, and goes on to describe and explain the principal methods of chemical synthesis. With its emphasis on chemical principles and strategies rather than detailed technical matters, this book should be useful to students of chemistry with an interest in this field.

John Jones was active in mainstream peptide chemistry for over 30 years and and made a number of important contributions, especially the development of a novel histidine side chain protecting group. His interests have recently been drawn away from conventional peptide chemistry into peptidomimetics based on carbohydrate-derived building blocks. He is currently Editor-in-Chief, Newletter Editor, and Treasurer of the Journal of Peptide Science, the official journal of the European Peptide Society.
