Scientists in such fields as mathematics, physics, chemistry, biochemistry, biology, and medicine are currently involved in investigations of porphyrins and their numerous analogues and derivatives. Porphyrins are being used as platforms for the study of theoretical principles, as catalysts, as drugs, as electronic devices, and as spectroscopic probes in biology and medicine. The need for an up-to-date and authoritative treatise on the porphyrin system has met with universal acclaim amongst scientists and investigators.
The Porphyrin Handbook represents a timely publication dealing with the recent chemistry, physics, biology, and medicine of porphyrins and related macrocycles. This publication will be a major reference source in this field for the new millennium.

Review quote

"This valuable series gathers together world-renowned experts in porphyrin research to discuss the chemistry, physics, biology, and medicine of porphyrins and related macrocycles. Comprehensive coverage extends through 1998... with some literature citations from 1999... As the editors state in the preface, however, "we asked each of the authors to write a manuscript which would be the definitive in this field for fifteen years to come, and we believe that most of them, if not all, rose to this challenge."
- Journal of the American Chemical Society, Volume 122, Number 16, April 26, 2000

"I have, at times, had people lined up to get at my volumes of The Porphyrin Handbook. Quite popular. People I don't know wander in to take a look and some hang around for quite a while. I put a couch in a public area outside my office to handle the traffic."
- Professor Thomas L. Poulos, University of California, Irvine
