Published: 2013-10-31 | ISBN: 1849736588 | PDF | 548 pages | 19 MB
The ability to design synthetic host compounds to selectively interact within biological systems has gained wide appeal due the vast number of potential applications. Uses in the life sciences include sensing of bioactive analytes (from metals to proteins), drug delivery systems, supramolecular ligands for biopolymers, drugs based on macrocyclic hosts, diagnostic tools, selective markers and bioassays. In Supramolecular Systems for Biomedical Fields internationally renowned experts cover each of the different applications providing a comprehensive overview of the topic. This timely publication will appeal to researchers from chemical, pharmaceutical, biological, and medicinal fields.
