One Line Description
This first-ever book to discuss metal coordination chemistry at the nano scale informs researchers and graduate students how to understand metal coordination polymers in bulk and nano dimensions and their applications.

The core audience of this book is inorganic chemists working in the field of coordination chemistry, coordination polymers and metal organic frameworks, as well as nanotechnologists. PhD and master students will find the book extremely valuable.

Coordination polymer is a general term used to indicate an infinite array composed of metal ions which are bridged by certain ligands among them. This incorporates a wide range of architectures including simple one dimensional chains with small ligands to large mesoporous frameworks. Generally, the formation process proceeds automatically and, therefore, is called a self-assembly process. In general, the type and topology of the product generated from the self-assembly of inorganic metal nodes and organic spacers depend on the functionality of the ligand and valences and the geometric needs of the metal ions used.
In this book the authors explain main group metal coordination polymer in bulk and nano size with some of their application, synthesis method, etc, The properties of these efficient materials are described at length including magnetism (long-range ordering, spin crossover), porosity (gas storage, ion and guest exchange), non-linear optical activity, chiral networks, reactive networks, heterogeneous catalysis, luminescence, multifunctional materials and other properties.
