Macrocyclic coordination chemistry

Archibald, Stephen J.



This chapter reviews the literature published during 2007 on macrocyclic coordination chemistry. Porphyrin ligands and supramolecular chemistry are not covered in this review as there is insufficient space and adequate coverage elsewhere, although a few examples may be included where particularly relevant. In general, the focus is on the coordination properties and reactivity of the compounds, although some applications will also be discussed, particularly in a brief section at the end of the chapter. Representations of X-ray structures have been included to show interesting coordination geometries, ion encapsulation or ligand orientation.
