Part of the Perspectives in Supramolecular Chemistry Series

Synopsis

The Lock-and-key Principle The State of the Art - 100 Years on by J.P. Behr

Perspectives in Supramolecular Chemistry will relate recent developments and new exciting approaches in supramolecular chemistry. In supramolecular chemistry, our aim is to understand the molecular chemistry beyond the covalent bond the series will concentrate on goal-orientated supramolecular chemistry. Perspectives in Supramolecular Chemistry will reflect research which develops supramolecular structures with specific new properties, such as recognition, transport and simulation of biosystems or new materials. The series will cover all areas from theoretical and modelling aspects through organic and inorganic chemistry and biochemistry to materials, solid-state and polymer sciences, reflecting the many and varied applications of supramolecular structures in modern chemistry. The Lock and Key Principle The State of the Art 100 Years on Edited by Jean-Paul Behr Published 100 years after Emil Fischer first proposed the lock-and-key principle, this volume provides a complete review of the subject to date and offers suggestions for further research. The major impact of the lock-and-key principle on the chemical, biomedical and materials sciences is discussed by leaders in the field, with chapters dedicated to molecular recognition, nucleic acid and protein chemistry, crystallography and the development of Emil Fischer's initial ideas. The Lock-and-Key Principle is the most up-to-date review of progress in supramolecular chemistry and the lock-and-key principle, and will become the essential guide to the past, present and future of this remarkable idea. The interdisciplinary nature of this topic is highlighted in The Lock-and-Key Principle ensuring that this volume is essential reading for chemists, molecular biologists, biochemists and materials scientists working in the areas of molecular recognition, enzymology, immunology, protein and nucleic acid chemistry, crystallography, bioinorganic and bioorganic chemistry and supramolecular chemistry.

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.

Sue Burton

What can I say, the clue is in the title Lovereading - and awesome books.

Sarah Davis

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.

Sam Lewis

It has opened my eyes to different authors and genres. Just log on and try, you will be surprised and not want for reading material again.

Jocelyn Garvey

A great place to go to find your next literary escape, and where you don't have to judge a book by its cover!

Suzanne Beney

My horizons have been broadened by some of the books I have been lucky to review and I expect it to be no different in the future.

Daran Bellingham

Its jam packed with fantastic titles, informative descriptions & fantastic reviews and has a vast array of great features & competitions.

Linda Rollins

It's information about new books so, for a book lover like me, what's not to like!
