Synopsis

Organometallics in Environment and Toxicology by John S. Thayer

This volume, closely related to MILS-6, deals mainly with metal(loid)-alkyl derivatives but also with the rarer aryl compounds. Most of these (commonly toxic) compounds are formed in the environment by microorganisms, but some anthropogenic input occurs as well. MILS-7, providing a most up-to-date view, is of special relevance for researchers in analytical and bioinorganic chemistry, enzymology, environmental chemistry, physiology, toxicology, and related medical fields.

Reviewed by Bernhard Michalke

This book is the seventh volume of the series Metal ions in life sciences, devoted to the expanding research area around organometal-compounds in the environment and on some of their toxicological aspects.

It is a comprehensive supplement for scientists who start going into the interdisciplinary field of biological inorganic chemistry, and it is also a timely summary of current knowledge for those who are experienced in this area. Thus scientists working in organometallic chemistry, inorganic biochemistry, environmental toxicology, coordination chemistry, molecular and structural biology, up to physiology and toxicology can extract valuable information.

The first chapter provides a general overview on distribution, form, transport and spec


About the Author

Astrid Sigel has studied languages and was an editor of the Metal Ions in Biological Systems series (until Volume 44) and also of the Handbooks on Toxicity of Inorganic Compounds (1988), on Metals in Clinical and Analytical Chemistry (1994; both with H. G. Seiler) and on Metalloproteins (2001; with Ivano Bertini). Helmut Sigel is Emeritus Professor (2003) of Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Basel, Switzerland, and a previous editor of the MIBS series until Volume 44. He serves on various editorial and advisory boards, published over 300 articles on metal ion complexes of nucleotides, coenzymes, and other ligands of biological relevance, and lectured worldwide. He was named Protagonist in Chemistry (2002) by ICA (issue 339); among further honors are the P. Ray Award (Indian Chemical Society, of which he is also an Honorary Fellow), the Werner Award (Swiss Chemical Society), a Doctor of Science honoris causa degree (Kalyani University, India), appointments as Visiting Professor (e.g., Austria, China, Japan, UK) and Endowed Lectureships. Roland K. O. Sigel is Associate Professor (2009) of Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Z^3rich, Switzerland,; from 2003 to 2008 he was endowed with a F/rderungsprofessur of the Swiss National Science Foundation. He received his doctoral degree summa cum laude (1999) from the University of Dortmund, Germany, working with Bernhard Lippert. Thereafter he spent nearly three years at Columbia University, New York, USA, with Anna Marie Pyle (now Yale University). During the six years abroad he received several prestigeous fellowships from various sources, and he was awarded the EuroBIC Medal in 2008. His research focuses on the structural and catalytic role of metal ions in ribozymes, especially group II introns, and on related topics. He was also an editor of Volumes 43 and 44 of the MIBS series.

Lovereading has given me the opportunity to delve into new and exciting worlds of authors who I would never have tried before.

Glynis Elliott

Lovereading takes the guesswork out of finding your next read with "if you like you'll love" and extracts to help with your decision.

Sarah Bruch

Thanks to Lovereading I have discovered new writers and read books I would never had looked twice at - and enjoyed them.

Angela Rhodes

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

Tessa Olson

I love Lovereading because I get to read great books and then get to tell everybody how good they are.

Sally Doel

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

Joan Hill

Lovereading always comes up with great suggestions and has introduced me to enjoyable books and new authors to discover.

Gaynor Passmore

The books for review are always great reads, brilliantly written, and introduces me to a huge variety of, established and new, authors.
