About the book

Substitution reactions are an important class of reactions in organic, inorganic, organometallic chemistry, biochemistry, etc. Many processes in our body are based on these reactions. Also, the mechanism of drug treatments is based on substitution processes. Considering the importance of these reactions, this book aims to represent the combination of basic knowledge with novel research results in different chemistry fields. The main goal of this book is to present readers in one place the importance of the type of the substitution reactions, the key features, methodology and diverse techniques that are used in an investigation. Substitution reactions in various fields of chemistry are included, methods for determining the rate of chemical reactions are described. Connections between diverse chemistry fields which are popular, such as medicinal chemistry, food chemistry, biological chemistry, free radical chemistry also are made.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Romina Rovan

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.
