Book Description

The significance of metals in biology; the environment; and medicine has become more and more evident over the last twenty-five years.

The ebook begins with introductory chapters; which together constitute an overview of the concepts; both biological and chemical; which are required to equip the reader for the detailed analysis which follows. Pathways of metal assimilation; storage; and transport; along with metal homeostasis are dealt with next. Afterward; individual chapters discuss the roles of sodium and potassium; magnesium; calcium; iron; copper; zinc; nickel; manganese and cobalt; and finally molybdenum; tungsten; vanadium; and chromium.
