About this book

Emphasis is placed on photodynamic effects, possible role of oxygen species in human diseases, in smog and acid rain formation, in degradation of polymers and plant senescence processes. The book also includes cell and tissue mechanisms of protection against damage caused by oxygen species.


Chemical Aspects: Properties of Activated Oxygen Species * Role of Transition Metal Ions in Generation of Oxygen Species and Their Interconversion * Reactions of Oxygen Free Radicals and Singlet Oxygen * Detection of Oxygen Species and Singlet Oxygen. Environmental Aspects: Biological Damage Caused by Reactive Oxygen Species * Possible Useful Roles of Reactive Oxygen Species * Cell and Tissue Mechanisms of Protection Against Oxygen Free Radicals and Singlet Oxygen Damage * Role of Oxygen Species in Air and Water Environments * Subject Index.
