About the Author

Dieter Rehder is a Professor in the Institute of Inorganic and Applied Chemistry, University of Hamburg where his main fields of research include organometallic, bioinorganic and medicinal chemistry (of vanadium), oxido- and sulfidometal clusters, and metal NMR. Dieter was winner of the Vanadis Award 2006 for outstanding research in the field of vanadium chemistry.


Until now, our bookshelves have lacked a modern and conceptual textbook on bioinorganic chemistry. Rehder's Bioinorganic Chemistry now fills that gap. This textbook covers general concepts, discusses current literature, and inspires students for individual additional examinations. For these reasons, I strongly recommend this textbook for students and will incorporate it into my future teaching.
