This second volume seems to be as carefully written, edited, indexed, and produced as the first. It contains three chapters by Dr. Greenberg on the carbon catabolism of amino acids, syntheses involving amino acids, and the metabolism of sulfurcontaining compounds. One chapter apiece are contributed by P. P. Cohen who writes on the nitrogen metabolism of amino acids; by H. Borsook, on enzymatic syntheses of peptide bonds; by M. P. Schulman, on purines and pyrimidines; by L. A. Heppel, on nucleotides and nucleosides; and by S. Granick, on the metabolism of heme and chlorophyll. There is no preface to volume 2, so that if anyone came onto it separately he would remain ignorant of the purpose of the series.
