The Periodic Table of Chemical Elements is one of the most significant achievements in science. 2019 marks the 150th anniversary of the Mendeleev periodic table and has been designated by UNESCO as the International Year of the Periodic Table (IYPT). 

You can access now and explore the elements with the Wiley Books interactive Periodic Table. It's been customized to highlight 60 Wiley books, each relating to a different chemistry elements. Click on a book cover to access free content related to that element!

About the Boron-book "Boron-Based Compounds: Potential and Emerging Applications in Medicine"

boron bookBoron-Based Compounds offers a summary of the present status and promotes the further development of new boron-containing drugs and advanced materials, mostly boron clusters, for molecular medical diagnostics. The knowledge accumulated during the past decades on the chemistry and biology of bioorganic and organometallic boron compounds laid the foundation for the emergence of a new area of study and application of boron compounds as lipophilic pharmacophores and modulators of biologically active molecules.This important text brings together in one comprehensive volume contributions from renowned experts in the field of medicinal chemistry of boron compounds. 

The authors cover a range of the most relevant topics including boron compounds as modulators of the bioactivity of biomolecules, boron clusters as pharmacophores or for drug delivery, boron compounds for boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT) and for diagnostics, as well as in silico molecular modeling of boron- and carborane-containing compounds in drug design. Authoritative and accessible, Boron-Based Compounds:

  • Contains contributions from a panel of internationally renowned experts in the field
  • Offers a concise summary of the current status of boron-containing drugs and materials used for molecular diagnostics
  • Highlights the range and capacity of boron-based compounds in medical applications
  • Includes information on boron neutron capture therapy and diagnostics

Designed for academic and industrial scientists, this important resource offers the cutting-edge information needed to understand the current state of boron-containing drugs and materials for molecular medical diagnostics.

Edited by Evamarie Hey-Hawkins and Clara Viñas Teixidor.
