Macrocyclic coordination chemistry

Archibald, Stephen J.



This chapter reviews the literature published during 2009 reporting macrocyclic coordination chemistry. The focus is on complexes formed with transition metal and lanthanide ions (porphyrin ligands and supramolecular chemistry are not covered). The intention is to summarise trends in macrocyclic chelator design and the impact of the subsequent coordination chemistry on applications.
