New Directions in Organic & Biological Chemistry


About the Series

Organic and biological chemistry forms a key major division of chemistry research, with continuous rapid progress in existing areas as well as development of new avenues of research. This book series encompasses cutting-edge research across the entire field, including impor-tant developments in both new and fundamental aspects of the discipline. It covers all aspects of organic and biological chemistry. The series is designed to be very wide in scope and provides a vehicle for the publication of edited review volumes, monographs, and “how to” manuals of experimental practice.

Topic Areas Include:

  • Synthetic Chemistry
  • Natural Products Chemistry 
  • Materials Chemistry
  • Supramolecular Chemistry
  • Electrochemistry
  • Organometallic Chemistry
  • Green Chemistry(including catalysis and biocatalysis)
  • Polymer Chemistry
  • Protein-protein, Protein-DNA, Protein-lipid, Protein-carbohydrate interactions
  • Enzyme/protein mechanism(including cofactor-protein interactions and mechanisms of action)
  • Pathways in cofactor (including metal) homeostasis
  • Synthetic biology - the engineering of natural systems towards novel functions
  • Development of physical methods and tools (e.g., new spectroscopic methods, imaging techniques and tools)

Chiral Ligands Evolution of Ligand Libraries for Asymmetric Catalysis

Chiral Ligands: Evolution of Ligand Libraries for Asymmetric Catalysis

1st Edition

Forthcoming

Edited By Montserrat Diéguez
May 17, 2021

Many new drugs on the market are chiral compounds, that is, they can exist in two non-superimposable mirror-image forms. Asymmetric catalysis encompasses a large variety of processes for obtaining such compounds. The performance of the catalyst in those processes largely depends on the ligand that ...

Edited By Julie Fisher
October 13, 2014

A blend of theory and practical advice, Modern NMR Techniques for Synthetic Chemistry illustrates how NMR spectroscopy can be used to determine the abundance, size, shape, and function of organic molecules. It provides you with a description the NMR technique used (more pictorial than mathematical)...

Concerted Organic and Bio-Organic Mechanisms

Concerted Organic and Bio-Organic Mechanisms

1st Edition

By Andrew Williams
October 27, 1999

The concept of concerted mechanisms was formulated nearly 90 years ago and virtually all general organic chemistry texts mention it. Until now, however, no monograph has addressed the concept explicitly. Over the last two decades, substantial advancements made in the development of precise methods ...

Capillary Electrophoresis Theory and Practice, Second Edition

Capillary Electrophoresis: Theory and Practice, Second Edition

2nd Edition

Edited By Patrick Camilleri
November 25, 1997

The importance of capillary electrophoresis (CE) as an analytical tool has increased dramatically over the last ten years. It has changed from being an exploratory technique, mainly of academic interest, to one that is applied to solve "real" analytical problems. CE is easily adapted to its various...
