"Metal Ions in Biological Systems" and "Metal Ions in Life Sciences"

"Metal Ions in Life Sciences" links coordination chemistry and biochemistry in their widest sense and thus increases our understanding of the relationship between the chemistry of metals and life processes. The series reflects the interdisciplinary nature of Biological Inorganic Chemistry and coordinates the efforts of scientists in fields like biochemistry, inorganic chemistry, coordination chemistry, molecular and structural biology, biophysics, enzymology, environmental chemistry, physiology, toxicology, pharmacy, and medicine. Consequently, the volumes are an essential source for researchers active in these and related fields, as well as teachers preparing courses, e.g., in Bioinorganic Chemistry.
