Description

The number-one reference on the topic now contains a wealth of new data: The entire relevant literature over the past six years has been painstakingly surveyed, resulting in hundreds of new descriptors being added to the list, and some 3,000 new references in the bibliography section. Volume 1 contains an alphabetical listing of more than 3300 descriptors and related terms for chemoinformatic analysis of chemical compound properties, while the second volume lists over 6,000 references selected from 450 journals. To make the data even more accessible, the introductory section has been completely re-written and now contains several "walk-through" reading lists of selected keywords for novice users.
Volume I: ALPHABETICAL LISTING

The alphabetical dictionary part has been carefully revised and moderately expanded to include approx. 1600 entries (10 % of them new).
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.
"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, 2011)

"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)
