Book Review Atom-Absorptions-Spektroskopie (Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy). By Bernhard Welz

is regrettable that apart from the section on biopolymers,
the dielectric phenomena of high polymers are not discussed.
The book also lacks descriptions of measurements in the
microwave and far IR regions. It is to be hoped that these
topics will be included in subsequent volumes of this series.

Biosynthesis, Vol. I. Specialist Periodical Reports. The Chemical Society, London 1972. 1st Edit., 149 pp., bound E 6.50.
The present first volume in a series on the biosynthesis of
cell constituents is mainly concerned with methodological
studies and results for natural products from plants. The
literature discussed is mainly from the years 1970 and 1971,
though earlier studies are also included where these are
required to clarify relationships and basic principles.
The general principles are presented by S. A . Brown in the
opening chapter on labeling procedures in living plants and
in isolated tissue systems. with mutants and with specific
antimetabolites. This chapter also deals with the recent development of differential NMR spectroscopy for following the
fate of structural components, which can take the place of
isotope studies in favorable cases. The book then continues
with the discussion of fields in which particularly fruitful
and penetrating developments and results have been achieved
in recent years: the biosynthesis of monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes from acetyl coenzyme A ( J . R. Hunson), the conversion of isopentenyl pyrophosphate into triterpenes, steroids,
and carotenoids ( H . H. Rres and 7: W Goodwin), and the
biogenesis of phenolic compounds from shikimic acid or from
acetate units ( J . B. Hurhornr). One still often has t o resort
to general feeding experiments here to determine the reaction
sequence; in the case of the flavonoids, however, it has been
possible to establish the individual enzymatic steps, particularly through the work of Grisebach, and it is to be expected
that the next volume will be able to report similar progress
from other synthetic chains of plant materials. The book ends
with a mainly tabular summary of the biogenesis of alkaloids
( E . Lrrte), a complete account of which is to be given in
another series.
The detailed studies on the stereochemical course of the condensations, rearrangements, and oxidoreductions in the polyprene syntheses are conceptionally and experimentally outstanding. The individual chapters are excellently written, and
not only give the essential lines of current research but also
show the directions that are now becoming important. The
careful selection and discussion of the literature makes the
volume a strongly commendable guide to these publications
on plant physiology, which are often widely scattered and
not readily accessible. Those who are working in the field
will find this helpful in their own work, and it will also
prove a n excellent aid to anyone seeking a general survey.
These volumes thus really fulfill their intended purpose, and
will be welcomed by everyone concerned with the biochemistry
of the natural products of plants.

Atom-Absorptions-Spektroskopie (Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy). By Brrnhard Welz. Verlag Chemie GmbH, Weinheim/Bergstr. 1972. 1st Edit., x, 216 pp., 52 figs., 46 tables,
cloth D M 58.--.
Atomic absorption spectroscopy is one of the methods of
instrumental analysis whose widespread use is not confined
to chemical laboratories. Atomic absorption spectrometers
are nowadays to be found in many biological, mineralogical,
and clinical laboratories. This spectroscopic method is also
one of the standard methods of analysis in the protection

of the environment. W-hen an instrumental method of analysis
is used in such a wide variety of fields, one often finds that
it is not always used to its full advantage, mainly because
of the user’s training. A particularly welcome feature of the
present book, therefore, is that it has been written in such
a way that it will also be understandable to biologists, mineralogists, geologists, and clinical chemists.
The book deals with the physical principles of the method
without going into special physical and mathematical details,
as well as with the component parts of the instrument (light
sources, optics, electronics, etc.) and the determination of the
various elements (in alphabetical order).
A separate chapter is devoted to specific applications in medicine, biochemistry, toxicology, food chemistry, geochemistry,
petrochemistry, rtc. Literature references for further information are given here in tables arranged according to elements
for the particular type of test sample in question ( r . g . serum,
urine, fertilizer, rtc.). The book also contains a short chapter
on flame emission spectroscopy and atomic fluorescence spectroscopy, a very comprehensive bibliography (859 references),
and an appendix listing the commercially available atomic
absorption spectrometers (with tables of technical details).
The book, which may be described a s an excellent synthesis
of introduction and reference work, will be useful to anyone
who is concerned with atomic absorption spectroscopy.
