10: Chemical Structure and Biological Function of the Pyrrole Pigments and Enzymes (1954)

Max Rudolph Lemberg

Abstract


Liversidge Research Lecture delivered to the Royal Society of New South Wales, July 15, 1954. Reproduced by permission of the Royal Society of New South Wales from J. Proc. Roy. Soc. N.S.W., 1954, 88, 114-135.

"It is the story of a long research adventure which I intend to put before you. Everyone of us, however, explores only a few corners of a continent, and a rough map of what is known today must precede the story. The field is that of the tetrapyrrole pigments and enzymes, full of intrinsic chemical interest, but still more fundamentally important for the physiologist and biologist. Structure, metabolism, function and their correlation will therefore receive attention."
