Charge Transfer in DNA: From Mechanism to Application (3527310851) cover image
The past few years have witnessed intense research in this fascinating field as well as many controversial discussions. Now the time is ripe for a comprehensive book covering not only theoretical aspects, but also such mechanistic topics as principles and mechanisms of photoinduced charge injection, transport and trapping in DNA, sequence-dependent DNA dynamics, spectroscopic investigations of hole transport and much more.

From the contents:
* Principles and Mechanisms of Photoinduced Charge Injection, Transport and Trapping in DNA
* Sequence-Dependent DNA Dynamics: The Regulator of DNA-Mediated Charge Transport
* Excess Electron Transfer in DNA Probed with Flavin and Thymine Dimer Modified Oligonucleotides
* Dynamics of Photoinitiated Hole and Electron Injection in Duplex DNA
* Spectroscopic Investigation of Oxidative Hole Transfer via Adenine Hopping in DNA
* Chemical Probing of Reductive Electron Transfer in DNA
* Chemical Approach for Modulating Hole Transport in DNA
* Spectroscopic Investigation of Charge Transfer in DNA
* Spectroscopic Probing of Ultrafast Structural Relaxation and Electron Transfer Dynamics in DNA

Edited by Hans-Achim Wagenknecht, and written by renowned international authors, this book provides an excellent overview with high quality contributions, making it a "must-have" for everyone working in the field.

H.-A. Wagenknecht studied chemistry in Freiburg and received his Ph.D. with Wolf-D. Woggon at the University of Basel. For postdoctoral studies he joined the group of Jacqueline K. Barton at the California Institute of Technology (Pasadena). In 2003, he completed his habilitation and is currently research group leader at the Technical University of Munich. His research interests are in the field of synthetic DNA modifications for electron transfer studies towards DNA-based assays and materials.

"In this very attractively produced book, it is evident that much attention has been devoted to clear and consistent presentation of the material."
Angewandte Chemie International Edition

"The book addresses all modern work on charge transport in a timely fashion. I could not agree more with Professor Grey after reading this scholarly book: "All theorists and experimentalists interested in charge transport will want to have Charge Transfer in DNA in their personal libraries."
ChemBioChem

" ... a very timely book ... In general, the book is very recommendable to Diploma and PhD students entering this area of research , since it provides a good overview about the approaches, theories and aims in this field, including in each chapter, and this is really remarkably, recent literature up to 2004. It also has the merit to provide the reader with important spectroscopic and redox data for different donors, acceptors and bases ... The keyword index is very useful and allows not only to find topics of interest but also redox potentials of common donors and acceptors."
