Metal Ions in Life Sciences (MILS) is a series of books edited by Astrid, Helmut and Roland Sigel, which reflects the interdisciplinary nature of biological inorganic chemistry. The series was initially published by Wiley VCH, then the Royal Society of Chemistry[1] It is now published by Springer and available to read on-line.[2] Each volume contains between 12 and 18 articles by internationally recognized experts. The series follows on from the 44-volume series entitled "Metal Ions in Biological Systems".

Historical development[edit]

The journal Bioinorganic Chemistry was founded in 1970 to publish papers in the newly emerging discipline of studies of bioinorganic chemistry. This was concerned mostly, but not entirely, with the role of metal ions. "Metal Ions in Biological Systems" was begun three years later by Helmut Sigel and subsequently his wife Astrid, both at the University of Basel. The series was published by Marcel Dekker. Over a period of somewhat more than 30 years 44 volumes were published. Their son Roland Sigel, at the University of Zurich, was also involved in the last two volumes. In 2004 Dekker has been taken over by Taylor and Francis.[13]

The Sigels then launched a new series entitled "Metal Ions in Life Sciences". The first four volumes were published by John Wiley & Sons.[14] From 2009 the series is published by the Royal Society of Chemistry.
