A thorough understanding of stereochemistry is essential for the comprehension of almost all aspects of modern organic chemistry. It is also of great significance in many biochemical and medicinal disciplines, since the stereoisomers of a compound can have dramatically different biological properties. This text explains how the different properties of stereoisomers of a compound arise, and what processes can be used to prepare and analyze stereoisomerically pure compounds. It also presents prominent coverage of the stereochemistry of inorganic and organometallic compounds, which is likely to increase in importance, as these compounds are used as symmetric catalysts in asymmetric synthesis. Modern stereochemical terminology is used throughout, although reference is also made to older terms which are still widely used. A set of problems at the end of each chapter aims to further the reader's understanding of how the content can be applied. The book is designed mainly as a textbook for undergraduate students and as a reference source for more advanced levels, but is also intended for academic and professional organic chemists.

Multidisciplinary coverage of circular dichroism's principles, applications, and latest advances The four years since the publication of the first edition of Circular Dichroism: Principles and Applications have seen a rapid expansion of the field, including new applications, improved understanding of principles, and a growing interest in circular dichroism (CD) among researchers from a wide variety of disciplines. The Second Edition keeps pace with this phenomenal growth with up-to-date contributions from dozens of the world's leading researchers and practitioners in chirality, chemistry, biochemistry, and analytical chemistry, as well as vibrational and luminescence spectroscopy. With nine entirely new chapters and substantial updates of existing material, Circular Dichroism, Second Edition provides important insight into the immense potential of CD and bridges the gap between theory and practice. The book begins with coverage of historical developments and moves quickly to fascinating reports on recent advances and emerging new fields in CD. New and updated coverage includes: * VOA theory * Solid-state CD applications * Fast time-resolved CD measurements * A model illustrating how polymers amplify chirality * Induced CD of polymers * CD of nucleic acids: nonclassical conformations and modified oligonucleotides * DNA-drug and DNA-protein interactions * Applications of CD to important pharmaceutical compounds Featuring an increased emphasis on biological molecules and extensive applications to organic stereochemistry and biopolymers, Circular Dichroism: Principles and Applications, Second Edition will prove a valuable and frequently consulted reference for organic chemists, biochemists, and medicinal and pharmaceutical chemists.

This textbook is an accessible overview of the broad field of organic electrochemistry, covering the fundamentals and applications of contemporary organic electrochemistry. The book begins with an introduction to the fundamental aspects of electrode electron transfer and methods for the electrochemical measurement of organic molecules. It then goes on to discuss organic electrosynthesis of molecules and macromolecules, including detailed experimental information for the electrochemical synthesis of organic compounds and conducting polymers. Later chapters highlight new methodology for organic electrochemical synthesis, for example electrolysis in ionic liquids, the application to organic electronic devices such as solar cells and LEDs, and examples of commercialized organic electrode processes. Appendices present useful supplementary information including experimental examples of organic electrosynthesis, and tables of physical data (redox potentials of various organic solvents and organic compounds and physical properties of various organic solvents).

Understanding, identifying and influencing the biologicalsystems are the primary objectives of chemical biology. From this perspective, metal complexes havealways been of great assistance to chemical biologists, for example, in structural identificationand purification of essential biomolecules, for visualizing cellular organelles or to inhibitspecific enzymes. This inorganic side of chemical biology, which continues to receive considerableattention, is referred to as inorganic chemical biology. Inorganic Chemical Biology: Principles, Techniques andApplications provides a comprehensive overview of the current and emerging role of metal complexes inchemical biology. Throughout all of the chapters there is a strong emphasis on fundamentaltheoretical chemistry and experiments that have been carried out in living cells or organisms. Outlooksfor the future applications of metal complexes in chemical biology are also discussed. Topics covered include: • Metal complexes as tools for structural biology • IMAC, AAS, XRF and MS as detection techniques for metals inchemical biology • Cell and organism imaging and probing DNA using metal andmetal carbonyl complexes • Detection of metal ions, anions and small molecules usingmetal complexes • Photo-release of metal ions in living cells • Metal complexes as enzyme inhibitors and catalysts inliving cells Written by a team of international experts, Inorganic ChemicalBiology: Principles, Techniques and Applications is a must-have for bioinorganic,bioorganometallic and medicinal chemists as well as chemical biologists working in both academia and industry.
