Metallofoldamers: Supramolecular Architectures from by Galia Maayan,Markus Albrecht

By Galia Maayan,Markus Albrecht

Metallofoldamers are oligomers that fold into 3-dimensional constructions in a managed demeanour upon coordination with steel ions. Molecules during this category have proven a magnificent skill to shape single-handed helical buildings and different 3-dimensional architectures. a number of metallofoldamers were utilized as sensors as a result of their selective folding while binding to a particular steel ion, whereas others exhibit promise for functions as responsive fabrics at the foundation in their skill to fold and spread upon alterations within the oxidation kingdom of the coordinated steel ion, and as novel catalysts.

Metallofoldamers: From Helicates to Biomimetic Architectures describes the diversity of interactions among oligomers and steel species, with a spotlight on non-natural man made molecules.

Topics coated include:

  • the significant periods of foldamers and their folding using force
  • metalloproteins and metalloenzymes
  • helicates: self-assembly, constitution and applications
  • abiotic metallo-DNA
  • metallo-PNA and iDNA
  • metallopeptides
  • interactions of biomimetic oligomers with steel ions
  • applications of metallofoldamers

New Techniques in the Analysis of Foods by Michael H. Tunick,Samuel A. Palumbo,Pina M. Fratamico

By Michael H. Tunick,Samuel A. Palumbo,Pina M. Fratamico

The contributions during this quantity have been first provided at a symposium prepared by way of the editors and held on the 214th nationwide assembly of the yankee Chemical Society in Las Vegas in September, 1997. The symposium used to be subsidized by means of the ACS department of Agricultural and nutrition Chemistry and lined fresh advancements of curiosity in meals research. Many adjustments have happened because the general textbooks on meals research have been released: E. coli zero 157:H7 has leaped into prominence, requiring new and quick equipment of detection; MALDI-MS used to be constructed and utilized in meals research for the 1st time; elec­ tron microscopy, fluorescence spectroscopy, and electrorheology were utilized to cheese, bread, meat, and chocolate, new equipment for tracking and predicting shelf existence were brought; new strategies for identifying the composition of foodstuff have advanced. This ebook contains many rising techniques which nutrients scientists might locate valuable and doubtless won't locate in a textbook. The editors thank the authors whose paintings is gifted in those chapters, the Divi­ sion of Agricultural and nutrition Chemistry for agreeing to carry the symposium, and our edi­ tors at Kluwer educational I Plenum Publishers whose suggestions made our activity more straightforward.

Solved and Unsolved Problems of Structural Chemistry by Milan Randic,Marjana Novic,Dejan Plavsic

By Milan Randic,Marjana Novic,Dejan Plavsic

Solved and Unsolved difficulties of Structural Chemistry introduces new equipment and techniques for fixing difficulties with regards to molecular constitution. It comprises various topics equivalent to aromaticity—one of the primary topics of chemistry—and subject matters from bioinformatics comparable to graphical and numerical characterization of DNA, proteins, and proteomes. It additionally outlines the development of novel instruments utilizing thoughts from discrete arithmetic, quite graph conception, which allowed difficulties to be solved that many had thought of unsolvable.


The ebook discusses a few vital difficulties in chemistry that experience now not been totally understood or totally favored, corresponding to the thought of aromaticity and conjugated circuits, the generalized Hückel 4n + 2 Rule, and the character of quantitative structure–property–activity relationships (QSARs), that have ended in in basic terms partly solved difficulties and approximated ideas which are insufficient. It additionally describes benefits of mathematical descriptors in QSAR, together with their use in screening combinatorial libraries to look for buildings with excessive similarity to the objective compounds.


Selected difficulties that this publication addresses include:



  • Multiple regression research (MRA)

  • Insufficient use of partial ordering in chemistry

  • The position of Kekulé valence structures

  • The challenge of protein and DNA alignment

Solved and Unsolved difficulties of Structural Chemistry collects effects that have been as soon as scattered in clinical literature right into a considerate and compact quantity. It sheds mild on a number of difficulties in chemistry, together with ones that looked as if it would were solved yet have been really basically partly solved. most significantly, it exhibits extra whole ideas in addition to tools and techniques that may bring about actualization of extra ideas to difficulties in chemistry.
