About this book
Peroxynitrite is a powerful oxidiser which can damage a wide array of molecules within cells, including DNA and proteins, leading to apoptosis, inflammation or cancer. Peroxynitrite detection and quantification provides critical information in understanding its biological implications. Attempts to investigate the behavior of peroxynitrite in vivo and in vitro have been hampered by the difficulty in detecting this highly reactive oxygen species. This book presents the current state of the art in this research field with contributions from scientific leaders in the field. The chapters make clear the associated challenges and development for selective and sensitive detection of peroxynitrite.
This book is a timely addition to the literature, as the first in the field, dedicated to detecting this molecule in vivo. It will be welcomed by the community particularly medicinal and analytical chemists, developers of sensors and probes and analytical equipment manufacturers.
Serban Peteu is serving since 2011 as a Professor, adjunct in Chemical Engineering & Materials Science at Michigan State University, Michigan, United States and is also a Project manager and Principal investigator at the National Institute for Chemistry (ICECHIM) Bucharest Romania. He earned a PhD in Biotechnology and Bioengineering, with MS in Chemical Engineering, both from the “Politehnica” University Bucharest. His main research interests are in chemical sensors where he has advanced detection methods including for biological fluids. Both electrochemical and optochemical sensing have been investigated, with emphasis to response amplification via hybrid nano-architectures. Present works include catalytic interfaces for peroxynitrite quantification. He co-authored over 50 research publications: articles, book chapters, international patents and an RSC book co-edited in 2013.
