Welcome to the “Handbook of General Biochemistry.” This handbook is designed to serve as a fundamental resource for both students and practitioners delving into the intricate world of biochemical principles. Biochemistry, the science that explores the chemical processes within and related to living organisms, is an ever-evolving field at the heart of understanding life’s molecular intricacies.

This handbook provides a structured approach to understanding the key biochemical components that form the foundation of life: carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, vitamins, and minerals. Each section elucidates the structure, function, and significance of these essential biomolecules, offering a comprehensive overview of their roles in biological systems.

The detailed exploration of carbohydrates encompasses their diverse structures, metabolic pathways, and reactions, providing a nuanced understanding of their significance in energy production, cell structure, and signaling processes. Proteins, the workhorses of cellular function, are dissected to unravel their diverse functions, structures, and interactions, shedding light on their crucial roles in enzymatic reactions, structural support, and regulatory mechanisms.

Lipids, often recognized for their roles in energy storage and membrane formation, are elucidated in detail, highlighting their structural diversity and multifaceted functions in cellular processes. Vitamins and minerals, vital micronutrients, are examined for their indispensable roles as cofactors, antioxidants, and regulators of essential physiological functions.
Furthermore, this handbook delves into the intricate realm of biochemical reactions, specifically focusing on the reactions of carbohydrates. Detailed discussions on the analysis of unknown sugars and methods for estimation serve as valuable tools for researchers and students aiming to unravel the complexities of carbohydrate biochemistry.

This handbook is crafted to be a companion for enthusiasts seeking a comprehensive understanding of general biochemistry. It aims to provide a clear and concise elucidation of the intricate biochemical processes governing life, encouraging curiosity, exploration, and a deeper appreciation for the molecular complexities that underpin biological systems.

We hope this handbook serves as an invaluable resource, aiding in the quest for knowledge and fostering a deeper understanding of the captivating world of biochemistry.
