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 applications.As porphyrins are currently employed as platforms for study of theoretical principles and applications in a wide variety of fields, the Handbook of Porphyrin Science represents a timely ongoing series dealing in detail with the synthesis, chemistry, physicochemical and medical properties and applications of polypyrrole macrocycles. Professors Karl Kadish, Kevin Smith and Roger Guilard are internationally recognized experts in the research field of porphyrins, each having his own separate area of expertise in the field. Between them, they have published over 1500 peer-reviewed papers and edited more than three dozen books on diverse topics of porphyrins and phthalocyanines. In assembling the new volumes of this unique handbook, they have selected and attracted the very best scientists in each sub-discipline as contributing authors.This handbook will prove to be a modern authoritative treatise on the subject as it is a collection of up-to-date works by world-renowned experts in the field. Complete with hundreds of figures, tables and structural formulas, and thousands of literature citations, all researchers and graduate students in this field will find the Handbook of Porphyrin Science an essential, major reference source for many years to come.

About the Author:

Karl M Kadish is Distinguished University Professor of Chemistry at the University of Houston. He received his PhD from Pennsylvania State University and was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of New Orleans and a Chargé de Recherche at the University of Paris VI. Dr. Kadish's research interests are in analytical chemistry, porphyrin chemistry, chemistry and electrochemistry of biological compounds, redox reactions of metal complexes, spectroelectrochemistry and fullerene chemistry. He has published over 490 research papers and edited or co-edited 32 books. Since 2003, Dr Kadish has been the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Porphyrins and Phthalocyanines. He has also served as President of the Society of Porphyrins and Phthalocyanines since June 2000.

Kevin M Smith is the LSU Foundation James C. Bolton Distinguished Professor of Chemistry in Louisiana State University. He received his PhD and DSc degrees from the University of Liverpool (UK), and was a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University. Dr Smith has received the Corday-Morgan Medal and Prize from the Royal Society of Chemistry, UK, and the Alfred Bader Award in Bioorganic or Bioorganic Chemistry from the Americal Chemical Society. Dr Smith's interests are in organic and bioorganic chemistry of tetrapyrroles and their pyrrole precursors. He has published 685 papers, edited or co-edited 22 books on the topics of porphyrins and related molecules and has been awarded eight patents.

Roger Guilard is Professor of Chemistry at the University of Burgundy in France. He has been the recipient of the Coordination Chemistry Award from the French Chemical Society (1978) and of two Awards (1991, 1997) from the French Academy of Sciences. He received the Grand Prix de l'Académie des Sciences, Prix Gaz de France in 2001. He was elected as a fellow of the European Academy of Sciences in 2011. His major contributions are in the area of basic research but the results of his research have led to a number of applications and the awarding of 22 patents in the area of heterocyclic chemistry and coordination. He has a long-time interest in the synthesis and structural characterization of metalloporphyrins and biomimetic modeling of metalloenzymes. Dr Roger Guilard has published over 450 papers and co-edited 44 books which are devoted to the topics of porphyrins and related molecules.

Review:

"Everyone interested in the biological and chemical properties of porphyrins and related macrocycles will want to own the Handbook. The editors have done a terrific job in linking together the volumes in this very valuable resource for investigators in the chemical and biological sciences." --Harry B Gray, Wolf Laureate, Chemistry, California Institute of Technology, USA

"Vivid testimony to the continuing broad interest and deep impact of the chemistry of these Pigments of Life." --Jean-Marie Lehn, Nobel Laureate, Chemistry, College de France, France
