In response to low iron availability in the environment most microorganisms synthesize iron chelators, called siderophores. Bacteria and fungi produce a range of structurally diverse siderophores, which show a very high affinity for ferric ions. This book presents an overview of the chemistry, biology and biotechnology of these iron chelators.
