These volumes of Copper Proteins and Copper Enzymes are intended to describe the contemporary spectroscopy and other biophysical chemistry now being applied to copper proteins in order to determine the structures of their active sites. Several chapters of the treatise describe the functional understanding which is emerging from the new work. The authors are all major contributors to research progress on copper proteins and the volumes will be found to be definitive and authoritative.
