This volume provides an in-depth overview of the chemistry of metalloporphyrins as oxidation catalysts in chemical and biological systems. It discusses practical techniques for the synthesis of metalloporphyrins and introduces useful methods of immobilization to improve their synthetic utility. Detailed discussions of underlying mechanistic features are provided.
". . .updates these reviews and combines the various approaches (biological, synthetic, mechanistic, etc.) into one volume of eleven chapters by highly competent authors. . . .recommended to all who are in or want to enter the metalloporphyrin field. "
