About the book

The textbook would target the recent most developments in the chromophores (dyes, pigments, organic compounds with extended conjugation and their metal-complexes) and bio-chromophores (natural biomolecules such as metalloenzymes and artificial biomolecules for instance those developed by integrating biomolecules with chromophores) based research.

This book will entail design, development, and industrial applications of new and novel dyes and pigments from wide areas of organic and inorganic chemistry along with biological sciences. Besides, this book will comprise recent design and development on organic molecules and their metal-complexes towards the detection of biologically and environmentally concerned cations, anions, neutral molecules via chromogenic, fluorometric, and electrochemical signaling responses using UV/vis, emission, and electrochemical techniques. Further, the advancements in the bio-chromophores for detection of biologically vital as well as harmful ions and molecules using colorimetric changes via UV/vis technique, fluorimetric signaling through emission technique, and electrochemical changes by cyclic voltammetry (CV), LSV, etc. will also be included in this book.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Sara Debeuc

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
