Synthesis and properties of expanded cage complexes of Pt(IV), Pt(II), Co(III) and Cr(III)

Brown, Kylie Nancy


The thermodynamic, kinetic, redox and spectral properties of metal ion macropolycycles have been shown to differ dramatically from those of their mono-, di-, tri- and polydentate acyclic analogues. These properties depend on a combination of effects, including the ability of the ligand to adopt the preferred geometry of the metal ion (and vice versa), the match between the size of the metal ion and the cavity of the ligand and the type of ligating atoms. These effects may be systematically...[Show more]
