About this book

Even high-speed supercomputers cannot easily convert traditional two-dimensional databases from chemical topology into the three-dimensional ones demanded by today's chemists, particularly those working in drug design. This fascinating volume resolves this problem by positing mathematical and topological models which greatly expand the capabilities of chemical graph theory. The authors examine QSAR and molecular similarity studies, the relationship between the sequence of amino acids and the less familiar secondary and tertiary protein structures, and new topological methods.

Reviews

`An excellent view of the current status of the use of mathematical methods to study the three-dimensional aspects of chemical structure and properties. The combination of fundamental and applied research...make it especially valuable.'
Journal of the American Chemical Society, 119(47), 1997

`The QSAR chapters are a valuable reference for pharmaceutical and medicinal chemists; the protein prediction method is important reading for structural biochemists; the Fullerene and hydrocarbon chapters are fascinating for computational chemists...The writing is clear and revealing, supplemented by good illustrations. It is well worth reading.'
Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, 1998, 41(11)
