Bioorganometallics: Biomolecules, Labeling, Medicine (352730990X) cover image
This first comprehensive book to cover the expanding field of bioorganometallics represents the perfect starting point for beginners but also an excellent source of high quality information for experts in the field.
Edited by a pioneer in the field with an excellent standing within the community, this book begins with the history of bioorganometallics, before going on to cover pharmaceuticals, bioorganometallic chemistry and radiopharmaceuticals.
A must for bioinorganic chemists, the pharmaceutical industry, chemists working in organometallics and biochemists.
