Full bibliography of more than 6000 references, selected from 450 journals and covering the period from the beginning of molecular descriptor research until the year 2008
Viviana Consonni received her PhD in chemical sciences from the University of Milano in 2000 and is now full researcher of chemometrics and chemoinformatics at the Department of Environmental Sciences of the University of Milano-Bicocca (Milano, Italy). She is a member of the Milano Chemometrics and QSAR Research Group and has 10 years experience in multivariate analysis, QSAR, molecular descriptors, multicriteria decision making, and software development. She is author of more than 40 publications in peer-reviewed journals and of the book "Handbook of Molecular Descriptors," by R. Todeschini and V. Consonni, 2000. In 2006, she obtained the International Academy of Mathematical Chemistry Award for distinguished young researchers and, in June 2009, has been elected as youngest Member of the Academy.
The reference lists have been completely updated with approx. 3000 new references from the period 2001 to 2008, thus almost doubling the number of literature citations in the book.
In order to facilitate the literature search, the bibliography is now included in a separate volume.
The second editon features a greatly expanded introductory section that now contains annotated lists of selected keywords for novice users who want to get started on the use of molecular descriptors for particular questions.
"The comprehensive listing of descriptors... is the actual strength of the book. Even experts in the field will find these sections helpful, because these are at the level of reviews." (ChemMedChem, 2010)"Outstandingly succeeds in its aim, it really is a magnificent work and every scientific ad medical library and group linked to the field should have a copy." (Current Engineering Practice, 2010)
“This is an outstanding book, a book that will be appreciated by many, not only today and in the near future, as is the case with most scientific books, but for years to come. I would like without any hesitation to strongly recommend this book as an essential ‘instrument’ in all chemometrics laboratories all over the world.” (Journal of Chemical Information and Modeling, January 2010)
