Description

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.
