Scientists in such fields as mathematics, physics, chemistry, biochemistry, biology, and medicine are currently involved in investigations of porphyrins and their numerous analogues and derivatives. Porphyrins are being used as platforms for the study of theoretical principles, as catalysts, as drugs, as electronic devices, and as spectroscopic probes in biology and medicine. The need for an up-to-date and authoritative treatise on the porphyrin system has met with universal acclaim amongst scientists and investigators.
The Porphyrin Handbook represents a timely publication dealing with the recent chemistry, physics, biology, and medicine of porphyrins and related macrocycles. This publication will be a major reference source in this field for the new millennium.
* Editors are world-renowned experts in their particular fields of physical chemistry, bio-organic chemistry, and organometallic chemistry
* Consists of several thousand pages of articles written by internationally recognized experts
* Biological relevance of porphyrins is linked to their chemical, physical, and structural features
* Clear, concise, and uniform presentation with many hundreds of figures, tables and structural formulae
* Of interest to theorists, physicists, chemists, biochemists, biologists, and medical scientists

"I have had people lined up to get at my volumes of The Porphyrin Handbook. I put a couch in a public area outside my office to handle the traffic."
--PROFESSOR THOMAS L. POULOS, University of California, Irvine
"This valuable series gathers together world-renowned experts in porphyrin research to discuss the chemistry, physics, biology, and medicine of porphyrins and related macrocycles. Comprehensive coverage extends through 1998... with some literature citations from 1999... As the editors state in the preface, however, "we asked each of the authors to write a manuscript which would be the definitive work in this field for fifteen years to come, and we believe that most of them, if not all, rose to this challenge."
--JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN CHEMICAL SOCIETY, VOLUME 122, NUMBER 16, April 26, 2000
"The great merit of this 10-volume work lies in its competent treatments, by well organized experts, of the many aspects of the chemsitry, physics, biology, and pharmacology of the classical fully unsaturated porphyrins and of the corroles, isocorroles, isoporphyrins, carbaporphyrins, azaporphyrins, "expanded" porphyrins, and heteroporphyrins."
"...it is clear that with this handbook we now have a valuable standard work on porphyrin chemistry."
