Description

Advances in Inorganic Chemistry Volume 58 focuses on homogeneous biomimetic oxidation catalysis. Contributions by leading experts in the field cover important advances in inorganic and bioinorganic chemistry. Contributions include diversity-based approaches to selective biomimetic oxidation catalysis; the selective conversion of hydrocarbons with H2O2 using biomimetic non-heme iron and manganese oxidation catalysis; DNA oxidation by copper and manganese complexes; influences of the ligand in copper-dioxygen complex-formation and substrate oxidations; biomimetic oxidations by dinuclear and trinuclear copper complexes. In the final contribution the authors focus on green oxidation of alcohols using biomimetic copper complexes and enzymes as catalysts. Volume 58 provides another welcomed addition to the widely acclaimed series, Advances in Inorganic Chemistry.

About the editors

Rudi van Eldik

Rudi van Eldik was born in Amsterdam (The Netherlands) in 1945 and grew up in Johannesburg (South Africa). He received his chemistry education and DSc degree at the former Potchefstroom University (SA), followed by post-doctoral work at the State University of New York at Buffalo (USA) and the University of Frankfurt (Germany). After completing his Habilitation in Physical Chemistry at the University of Frankfurt in 1982, he was appointed as Professor of Inorganic Chemistry at the Private University of Witten/Herdecke in 1987. In 1994 he became Professor of Inorganic and Analytical Chemistry at the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg, from where he retired in 2010. At present he is Professor of Inorganic Chemistry at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland, and Visiting Professor of Inorganic Chemistry at the N. Copernicus University in Torun, Poland. His research interests cover the elucidation of inorganic and bioinorganic reaction mechanisms, with special emphasis on the application of high pressure thermodynamic and kinetic techniques. In recent years his research team also focused on the application of low-temperature rapid-scan techniques to identify and study reactive intermediates in catalytic cycles, and on mechanistic studies in ionic liquids. He is Editor of the series Advances in Inorganic Chemistry since 2003. He serves on the Editorial Boards of several chemistry journals. He is the author of over 880 research papers and review articles in international journals and supervised 80 PhD students. He has received honorary doctoral degrees from the former Potchefstroom University, SA (1997), Kragujevac University, Serbia (2006), Jagiellonian University, Krakow, Poland (2010), University of Pretoria, SA (2010), and Ivanovo State University of Chemistry and Technology, Russia (2012). He has developed a promotion activity for chemistry and related experimental sciences in the form of chemistry edutainment presentations during the period 1995-2010. In 2009
