Bioorganic chemistry is a branch of chemistry that combines biochemistry and organic chemistry. The study of biological processes through the use of chemical methods is the focus of bioorganic chemistry. Methods from organic chemistry are used to study biochemical reactions, synthesize biological molecules, and examine their structure. The scientific field of bioorganic chemistry is a combination of biochemistry and organic chemistry. Chemical methods are used in the study of biological processes, which is a subfield of life science. Examples of these processes include the function of proteins and enzymes. The journal's scope includes the following topics at the organic chemistrybiology interface: biotransformation, inhibition, and enzyme catalysis; chemistry of nucleic acids; chemistry for medicine; natural product biosynthesis, chemistry, and synthesis of natural products; antimicrobial substances Although the terms bioorganic chemistry and biochemistry are sometimes used interchangeably, biochemistry more accurately describes the subfield of study that focuses on the biological aspects of organic chemistry. This class aims to teach students about the life-sustaining chemicals like carbohydrates, lipids, amino acids, proteins, and nucleic acids, among others. Their bodies' structures, features, chemical reactions, and functions, as well as their capacity for qualitative and quantitative analysis. The study of living molecules like proteins, carbohydrates, nucleic acids, lipids, and so on is the core of biochemistry.


Biochemistry is made up of more intricate processes like metabolism, translation, transcription, and so on, whereas organic chemistry focuses on the fundamental ideas behind reactions. The two significant parts of bioinorganic science are:

i) The study of inorganic elements that are found naturally in biological systems

ii) The study of inorganic models that mimic the behaviour of various metalloproteinase and the introduction of these elements into biological systems as probes or drugs.

Bioorganic chemistry and biochemistry are occasionally used interchangeably; the difference is that bioorganic chemistry is organic chemistry that focuses on biological aspects, whereas organic chemistry does not. Bioorganic chemistry aims to bring organic-chemical research, such as structures, synthesis, and kinetics, closer to biology than does biochemistry, which uses chemistry to comprehend biological processes. Bioorganic chemistry and bioinorganic chemistry overlap when looking into metallo enzymes and cofactors. When bioorganic chemistry attempts to describe minute nuances of molecular recognition, the term biophysical organic chemistry is used. Normal item science is the most common way of Distinguishing intensifies tracked down in nature to decide their properties. Medical applications and the creation of insecticides and herbicides are frequently the outcomes of compound discoveries. Introduction to bioinorganic chemistry, essential elements, and the roles that metal ions play in the biochemical process Iron, haemoglobin, and myoglobin's biochemistry, as well as their biological roles and the toxicity of some elements.


Bioinorganic Chemistry is a multidisciplinary field that employs cutting-edge physical methods and expertise in biochemistry, chemistry, crystallography, genetics, medicine, and microbiology. The study of the structures and biological functions of inorganic biological substances, such as metals, that do not contain carbon, is known as bioinorganic chemistry. The actual properties that will be estimated during this lab are dissolvability, thickness, liquefying point, limit and refractive record. A substance's identity can be better understood with the assistance of these physical properties. The purity of a particular compound can also be determined using these same properties.
