Supramolecular Reactivity and Transport: Bioinorganic Systems

In this volume, an overview of the expanse of bioinorganic systems that involve supramolecular chemistry has been assembled. It commences with introductions to the supramolecular aspects of bioinorganic synthetic analogues and of metalloprotein structure and function. From there, a range of topics involving diverse metallobiomolecules (proteins, nucleic acids, and their synthetic analogues) are developed.
