Bioinorganic Chemistry

A section of Inorganics (ISSN 2304-6740).

Section Information

This section publishes results of a high scientific level in all aspects of Bioinorganic Chemistry research. Original papers of potential interest to the readership of the journal are published as full papers, short communications and reviews. The topics of interest to the journal include the structures, functions and mechanisms of metalloenzymes; modern methods to determine their structure; the synthesis and characterization of transition metal complexes as model systems mimicking the structure, spectroscopic properties and function of biomolecules; theoretical simulations; the role of metal ions in biology and medicine; interaction of metal ions and small molecules containing them with biological molecules; metal-based drugs and their mechanisms of action, etc.
