Handbook of Porphyrin Science
With Applications to Chemistry, Physics, Materials Science, Engineering, Biology and Medicine. Volume 11, Catalysis and Bio-inspired Systems, Part IIeBook - 2011
Porphyrins, phthalocyanines and their numerous analogues and derivatives are materials of tremendous importance in chemistry, materials science, physics, biology and medicine. They are the red color in blood (heme) and the green in leaves (chlorophyll); they are also excellent ligands that can coordinate with almost every metal in the Periodic Table. Grounded in natural systems, porphyrins are incredibly versatile and can be modified in many ways; each new modification yields derivatives, demonstrating new chemistry, physics and biology, with a vast array of medicinal and technical application.
