A comprehensive treatment of vitamin C, its history, chemistry, biochemistry, and medical importance. Discusses how its discovery emerged from its cure of scurvy, methods of synthesis, and the medical claims put forth for it. Some chapters are fairly technical, but not beyond undergraduate chemistry level. Acidic paper. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.

This is the first book to cover the history, chemistry, biochemistry, and medical importance of vitamin C and provide an in-depth study of this essential and fascinating compound.

Vitamin C is the first book to cover the history, chemistry, biochemistry, and medical importance of vitamin C and is the first to provide an in-depth, interdisciplinary study of this essential and fascinating compound. The book provides a comprehensive and systematic account of the vitamin C story, fully surveying the history of scurvy and how its cure led to the suggestion, discovery, and isolation of the vitamin, later named L-ascorbic acid. It describes in detail the vitamin's structure determination, synthesis and manufacture, and its oxidation products, derivatives and related compounds. Its key biochemical roles are fully categorized and explained, and the medical importance of the vitamin, including the recent use of so-called megadoses, is thoroughly discussed. Vitamin C will be of interest to a very wide readership and will provide useful background information and inspiration for students at various levels. It will also be relevant to the interested chemist or lay person, as well as those carrying out research in this area.
Introduction; History of Vitamin C and its Role in the Prevention and Cure of Scurvy; Discovery and Structure of Vitamin C; Synthesis, Manufacture and Further Chemistry of Vitamin C; Biochemistry of Vitamin C; Inorganic and Analytical Aspects of Vitamin C Chemistry; Bibliography; Index.
