Stilbenes: Applications in Chemistry, Life Sciences and Materials Science (3527323880) cover image
Filling the gap on the market for comprehensive coverage of this versatile class of compounds, the scope of this monograph ranges from preparation and modern methods of investigation, via chemical and photochemical reactions, photochronism and nonlinear effects, to stilbenes as bases for optical and measuring instruments, applications in industry, biochemistry and biomedicine, and as fluorescence-photochrome biophysical labels.
Invaluable for molecular biologists, materials scientists and cell biologists, as well as catalytic, organic, medicinal and complex chemists, and those working with/on organometallics.

Gertz I. Likhtenshtein received his PhD and his doctor of science from the Semenov Institute of Chemical Physics at the Russian Academy of Science in Moscow, where he was appointed tot he position of Head of Laboratory of Chemical Physics of Enzyme Catalysis in 1965, becoming a professor in 1976.
In 1992 he moved to the Department of Chemistry at the Ben-Gurion University of Negev, Israel, as a full professor in charge of the Laboratory of Chemical Biophysics and has been an emeritus since 2003. He has authored nine scientific books and around 380 papers, and his many awards include the Medal of the Exhibition of Economic Achievement, the Diploma of Discovery, the USSR State Prize, the V.V. Voevodsky International Price for Chemical Physics and the Diploma of the Israel Chemical Society. Professor Likhtenshtein is a member of the International ESR Society, the American Biophysical Society, the Israel Chemical Society and the Israel ESR Society.
His main scientific interests focus on mechanisms of light energy conversion and novel methods of immunoassay, nitroxides and antioxidants analysis.

"To recapitulate, it's a brilliant book, which anyone who cares about research or study of stilbenes needs to read. That's most of us -- scientists working on chemistry, physics, and biology of stilbenes and related areas such as optical materials and devices production, molecular biophysics, plant biochemistry, biomedicine, and pharmacology". (Current Engineering Practice, 1 November 2010)

“This book covers several aspects of stilbenes – their chemical reactions, photochemistry and applications in industry and biomedicine.” (Chemistry World, May 2010)
