Handbook of Microbial Iron Chelates emphasizes the various microbial compounds and synthetic analogues functioning as siderophores in microbes and as potential drugs in human iron metabolism. There are chapters describing the isolation, chemical characterization, synthesis and physicochemical properties of microbial iron chelates. Other chapters deal with the physiology and genetics of transport and receptors involved in iron uptake. Chemists, biologists, biochemists, pharmacologists, and medical doctors interested in the general aspects of iron metabolism, siderophores, receptors, and iron complex formation should consider this book a rich information source.
