About this product
- DescriptionMacrocyclic molecules contain rings made up of seven or more atoms. They are interesting because they provide building blocks for synthesizing precise two or three dimensional structures an important goal in natechlogy. For example, they can be used to develop nasized reaction vessels, cages, switches and shuttles, and have potential as components in molecular computers. They also have applications as catalysts and sensors. Macrocycles: Construction, Chemistry and Natechlogy Applications is an essential introduction this important class of molecules and describes how to synthesise them, their chemistry, how they can be used as natechlogy building blocks, and their applications. A wide range of structures synthesised over the past few decades are covered, from the simpler cyclophanes and multi-ring aromatic structures to vases, bowls, cages and more complex multi-ring systems and 3D architectures such as pumpkins , interlocking chains and kts. Topics covered include: * principles of macrocycle synthesis * simple ring compounds * multi-ring aromatic structures * porphyrins and phthalocanines * cyclophanes * crown ethers, cryptands and spherands * calixarenes, resorcinarenes, cavitands, carcerands, and heterocalixarenes * cyclodextrins * cucurbiturils * cyclotriveratylenes * rotaxanes * catenanes * complex 3D architectures, including trefoils and kts Macrocycles: Construction, Chemistry and Natechlogy Applications distills the essence of this important topic for undergraduate and postgraduate students, and for researchers in other fields interested in getting a general insight into this increasingly important class of molecules.
- Author BiographyDr Frank Davis Cranfield University, UK Dr Davis is a research fellow at Cranfield University, specialising in the biochemical and supramolecular aspects of electrochemistry. As well as pursuing academic research he has undertaken contract research for organisations such as Unilever Research (Port Sunlight), ITM Power Ltd (Sheffield), Timestrip (Hitchen) and DEFRA, and spent a 4-year research post within Gillette UK Professor Seamus Higson Cranfield University, UK Seamus Higson is Professor of Bio- and Electro-Analysis at Cranfield University which he joined in August 2002. His previous career spans academic departments of chemistry, medicine and materials science and this is reflected in his research. Professor Higson also serves within an advisory and / or consultative capacity for a number of public bodies and also acts as Technical Director for Microarray Ltd - a company formed upon science and patents originating from his group. His current research is primarily focussed towards practical implementation of electro analytical science and analytical biochemistry for biomedical, environmental and industrial process control applications.
