Summary The role of transition metals in various biological systems is of great interest to chemists; the specific properties of these metals often define the biological function of the proteins and systems these metals are found in. This volume introduces readers to a number of topics, including the transport and storage of metals; their functions in dioxygen interactions, electron transfer, and enzyme activity; the therapeutic uses of coordination compounds; and the role thatsmall-molecule models can play in advancing our knowledge of the structure and function of transition metals contained in metallobiosites
