Description

This series provides inorganic chemists and materials scientists with a forum for critical, authoritative evaluations of advances in every area of the discipline. Volume 57 continues to report recent advances with a significant, up-to-date selection of contributions from internationally-recognized researchers. The chapters of this volume are devoted to the following topics: Mechanisms of Water Oxidation Catalyzed by Ruthenium Coordination Complexes; Biomimetic and non-biological dinuclear Mx+-complex catalyzed alcoholysis reactions of phosphoryl transfer reactions; Photoactivated DNA Cleavage and Anticancer Activity of 3d-Metal Complexes; and more.
