About this book
There has been enormous progress in our understanding of molybdenum and tungsten enzymes and relevant inorganic complexes of molybdenum and tungsten over the past twenty years. This set of three books provides a timely and comprehensive overview of the field and documents the latest research.
Building on the first and second volumes that focussed on biochemistry and bioinorganic chemistry aspects, the third volume focusses on spectroscopic and computational methods that have been applied to both enzymes and model compounds. A particular emphasis is placed on how these important studies have been used to reveal critical components of enzyme mechanisms.
This text will be a valuable reference to workers both inside and outside the field, including graduate students and young investigators interested in developing new research programs in this area.
This book is edited by Professor Russ Hille (University of California, Riverside), Professor Carola Schulzke (University of Greifswald) and Professor Martin Kirk (University of New Mexico) who have over 275 publications ad over 65 years of experience between them in the field. Their complementary expertise in molybdenum containing enzymes, bioinorganic chemistry and the physical inorganic chemistry of molybdenum complexes and enzymes, respectively, allow the authoritative and comprehensive coverage demonstrated in this book.
