Latest work with IntechOpen by Hitoshi Ishida

Ruthenium is a precious metal not widely known to non-scientists. It is a target of much research, however. It is used in computer hard drives, the tips of fountain pens, and as a catalyst to purify car exhaust, among other uses. This book presents information and research on the properties and applications of ruthenium, including potential uses in phytochemical functions and anticancer activity.
