Bioorganometallics: Biomolecules, Labeling, Medicine (3527607110) 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.

"...vermittelt einen sehr guten Einblick in das sich rasch entwickelnde Grenzgebiet zwischen Organometallchemie, Biochemie, Medizin und Bioanalytik. Forschern auf diesem Gebiet sehr zu empfehlen."
Angewandte Chemie

"Fur Spezialisten auf dem Gebiet der Biochemie, der metallorganischen und auch der medizinischen Chemie muss es...als absolut wichtige Anschaffung angesehen werden. Besonders wertvoll erweist es sich vor allem dann, wenn die eigene klassische Teildisziplin verlassen und das Wissenschaftsspektrum in Richtung Lebenswissenschaften erweitert werden soll."
