Vocabulary Term Details

Biological properties

Definition (http://www.science.uwaterloo.ca/~cchieh/cact/applychem/propertyb.html)

A living organism has a material structure to provide an environment for complicated chemistry of living. Chemical and physical reactions provide energy to maintain living functions and to renew structural material. Thus, consideration of biological properties is a natural extension of physical and chemical properties. (University of Waterloo)
