Bioinorganic Chemistry Inorganic Elements in the Chemistry of Life
The field of Bioinorganic Chemistry has grown significantly inrecent years; now one of the major sub-disciplines of InorganicChemistry, it has also pervaded other areas of the life sciencesdue to its highly interdisciplinary nature. Bioinorganic Chemistry: Inorganic Elements in the Chemistryof Life, Second Edition provides a detailed introduction to therole of inorganic elements in biology, taking a systematicelement-by-element approach to the topic. The second edition ofthis classic text has been fully revised and updated to include newstructure information, emerging developments in the field, and anincreased focus on medical applications of inorganic compounds. Newtopics have been added including materials aspects of bioinorganicchemistry, elemental cycles, bioorganometallic chemistry, medicalimaging and therapeutic advances. Topics covered include: Metals at the center of photosynthesis Uptake, transport, and storage of essential elements Catalysis through hemoproteins Biological functions of molybdenum, tungsten, vanadium andchromium Function and transport of alkaline and alkaline earth metalcations Biomineralization Biological functions of the non-metallic inorganicelements Bioinorganic chemistry of toxic metals Biochemical behavior of radionuclides and medical imaging usinginorganic compounds Chemotherapy involving non-essential elements This full color text provides a concise and comprehensive review ofbioinorganic chemistry for advanced students of chemistry,biochemistry, biology, medicine and environmental science.
Written by a preeminent teacher and scientist in the field, this book provides specialists, students, and general readers with an understanding of the basic chemistry of interactions of inorganic substances with biological systems at the molecular level. The author presents bioinorganic concepts in context and brings a distinct chemistry perspective to the subject. • Provides the streamlined coverage appropriate for one-semester courses or independent study, with all of the necessary but none of the excessive information • Prepares readers to move to the next level of study (whether they continue on in the field or transition to medicine/industry) • Presents concepts through extensive four-color visuals, appealing to a range of learning styles • Promotes critical thinking through open-ended questions throughout the narrative and at the end of each chapter
This comprehensive series of volumes on inorganic chemistry provides inorganic chemists with a forum for critical, authoritative evaluations of advances in every area of the discipline. Every volume reports recent progress with a significant, up-to-date selection of papers by internationally recognized researchers, complemented by detailed discussions and complete documentation. Each volume features a complete subject index and the series includes a cumulative index as well.
Bioinorganic chemistry is primarily concerned with the role of metal atoms in biology and is a very active research field. However, even though such important structures of metalloenzymes are known, as the MoFeCo of nitrogenase, Cu or Mn superoxide dismutase and plastocyanin, the synthetic routes to the modelling of such centers remains a matter of acute scientific interest. Other metalloenzymes, such as the Mn center of the oxygen evolving complex of PSII, are still the focus of in-depth examination, both spectroscopic and structural. Another area of concern is the interaction between drugs and metals and metal ion antagonism. Understanding the chemistry of metal ions in biological systems will bring benefits in terms of understanding such problems as biomineralization and the production of advanced materials by micro-organisms. The 29 contributions to Bioinorganic Chemistry: An Inorganic Perspective of Life give an excellent summary of the state of the art in this field, covering areas from the NMR of paramagnetic molecules to the use of lanthanide porphyrins in artificial batteries.
Written by major contributors to the field, Bioinorganic Chemistry provides students with an introduction and overview of the subject and gives them the background required to read and follow the current research literature.
