This book summarizes the chemical mechanisms and detailed kinetics of amino acid and peptide oxidation to help understand how proteins break down or dissociate when under stress in biological and environmental systems so that new drugs and antioxidants may be developed. It provides a summary of fundamental information on the kinetics and mechanism of amino acids by various oxidants. It also discusses oxidative chemistry of amino acids, peptides, and proteins. This useful guide also provides problems and their solutions associated with amino acids, peptides, and proteins in the aquatic environment
