Bio-inorganic chemistry is a fast developing branch of chemistry which explores the role of metallic (and some non-metallic) elements in biological systems. Metals such as Na, K, Mg, Ca whose ions present in large quantity in biological systems are called bulk metals. Metals such as Fe, Cu, Co, Zn, Cr, Mn, Mo, W, Ni etc whose ions are present in trace amounts are called trace elements. Both types of metals are essential for life. Large number of biochemicals containing metal ions plays an important role in biological systems
