Chemical Reactions That Occur in a Decomposing Body
It is estimated that the human body has a specific chemical composition. The
approximations of its chemical composition are 1% carbohydrates, 10% fat, 20% proteins,
5% minerals and 64% water (Hayman and Oxenham 53). A decomposing body is therefore
characterized by chemical reactions, whose role is the breakdown of these macromolecules.
The purpose of this project is, therefore, to explore and discuss the different types of
chemical reactions that occur in a decomposing body.
Biochemically, a dead body is usually characterized by extensive biochemical
changes which occur as a result of alteration of enzymatic, chemical reactions, lack of oxygen
circulation, cessation of anabolic production of metabolites and cellular degradation. A
chemical reaction is a process that results in the chemical transformation of chemical
substances from one form to another. In chemical reactions, bonds are broken down, and new
bonds are formed. In a decomposing body, there are no nutrients available for the survival of
the cells (Janaway, et al. 315). Additionally, there is no oxygen intake from the surrounding
environments by the lungs. Due to the lack of nutrients, the oxygen in the blood is rapidly
consumed by the cells. The carbon IV oxide (CO2) and water (H2O) available in the
decomposing body react in the absence of oxygen t...
