Organic Photochromic and Thermochromic Compounds: Volume 2: Physicochemical Studies, Biological Applications, and Thermochromism
This publication is the fourth major treatise on photochromism involving organic molecules and derived systems. The first such book was edited by G.H. Brown in the Weissberger series in 1971, the second was edited by H. Durr and H. Bouas-Laurent in the Elsevier series in 1990. A third book, edited by C.B. McArdle, should be added to the list, which focuses on the very important topic of the behavior of photochromic systems in polymer matrices.; This book is a result of the large increase in the number of publications and patents concerning photochromic compounds and their use in various applications, such as ophthalmic lenses and security printing, during the last 10 years. As a result of this increased interest, two successful International Symposia on Photochromism have been held: the first, ISOP93, in France on Embiez Island near Bandol (September 12-16, 1993) and the second, ISOP96, in the United States in Clearwater, Florida (September 8-12, 1996). The number of countries represented at each of these symposia (17 and 16, respectively) attests to the international scope of the photochromic research community. This global interest is also exemplified by the authors of the chapters within this book. The aim of the second volume of this new review is focused on the physico-chemical properties and photochromic behavior of the best-known systems, leading to new developments in the known photochromic series or the discovery of new families.; However, chapters are included on the most appropriate physico-chemical methods by which photochromic substances can be studied (spectrokinetic studies on photostationary states, Raman spectroscopy, EPR, chemical computations and molecular modeling, X-ray diffraction analysis). In addition, special topics such as interaction between photochromic compounds and polymer matrices, photodegradation mechanisms, and potential biological applications have been treated. The last chapter, on thermochromic materials, is included to emphasize the chemical similarities between photochromic and thermochromic materials.; In general, the literature cited within the chapters covers publications through 1995.

Bioinorganic Chemistry: a Short Course
Bioinorganic chemical knowledge grows more interesting and more complex with each passing year. As more details about the usage and utility of metals in biological species and more mechanistic and structural information about bioinorganic molecules becomes available, scientists and students continue to turn their attention to this blossoming discipline. Rosette Roat-Malone's Bioinorganic Chemistry: A Short Course provides an accessible survey of bioinorganic chemistry for advanced undergraduate and graduate students. Comprehensive coverage of several topics offers insight into the increasingly diverse bioinorganic area. Roat-Malone's text concentrates on bioinorganic chemistry's two major focuses: naturally occurring inorganic elements and their behavior in biological systems, and the introduction of inorganic elements into biological systems, often as medicines.The book begins with two review chapters, Inorganic Chemistry Essentials and Biochemistry Fundamentals. Chapter 3, Instrumental and Computer-Based Methods, provides an introduction to some important instrumental techniques, including basic information about computer hardware and software.Chapters on specific topics include: Iron Containing Oxygen Carriers and Their Synthetic ModelsCopper EnzymesThe Enzyme NitrogenaseMetals in MedicineThe author also encourages instructors and students to pursue their own independent investigations in bioinorganic topics, providing a helpful, detailed list of suggestions. With a host of current bibliographic references, Bioinorganic Chemistry: A Short Course proves the premier text in its field.
