Macromolecules Containing Metal and Metal-Like Elements, Volume 1
Metal- and metalloid-containing macromolecules are defined as large molecules (i.e., polymers, DNA, proteins) that contain a metal or metalloid group affiliated with the molecule. The first volume in this series consists of a number of reviews of the field, to give the reader a background to build upon. Compiled by an all-star cast of macromolecular experts, this guide: Provides useful descriptions of applications for the reader to apply in his/her research into materials, polymers, and medicine/drug development. Covers non-linear optical materials, speciality magnetic materials, liquid crystals, anticancer and antiviral drugs, treatment of arthritis, antibacterial drugs, antifouling materials, treatment of certain vitamin deficiencies, electrical conductors and semiconductors, piezoelectronic materials, electrodes, UV absorption applications, super-strength materials, special lubricants and gaskets, selective catalytic and multisite catalytic agents.
