cis-trans Isomerization in Biochemistry

Christophe Dugave (Editor)

ISBN: 978-3-527-60933-8 October 2006 368 Pages


Collating the knowledge from over 20,000 publications in chemistry, biology and nanotechnology, this handbook is the first to comprehensively present the state of the art in one ready reference. A team of international authors connects the various disciplines involved, covering cis-trans isomerization of double bonds and pseudo-double bonds, as well as other cis-trans isomerizations.
For biochemists, organic chemists, physicochemists, photochemists, polymer and medicinal chemists.
