About the book

Hydrazones are a class of organic compounds that have a general formula R1R2C = NNH2. These compounds are commonly derived from aldehydes and ketones by reaction with hydrazine derivatives. Due to the presence of azomethine group, these compounds possess a plethora of applications in biological fields and are used as an analgesic, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, anti-tubercular, antiplatelet, antimalarial, anticancer, anticonvulsant, etc. hence beneficial to humankind. Moreover, the exceptional ligating properties of this variety of compounds make them form a large number of complex compounds with various metals. The metal-based hydrazones also present a broad range of applications in the pharmaceutical industry owing to their biological activities, including antibacterial, antifungal, antiparasitic, antioxidant, anticancer and anti-HIV properties.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Dolores Kuzelj

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.
