Anion coordination and anion-directed assembly: highlights from 1997 and 1998

Gale, P. A. (2000) Anion coordination and anion-directed assembly: highlights from 1997 and 1998 Coordination Chemistry Reviews, 199, pp. 181-233. (doi:10.1016/S0010-8545(99)00149-6).

Record type: Article


This review article highlights advances made in anion coordination chemistry in 1997 and 1998, The first section of the review examines anion receptors that do not contain metal ions, This is followed by a review of metal containing anion receptors in which the metal can function as (i) a coordination site for the anion; (ii) a non-coordinating reporter group that signals the presence of the anion by a perturbation of its physical properties; (iii) an element of a receptor designed to withdraw electron density from a rr-electron system and so increase the affinity of a hydrophobic receptor for anions or (iv) part of a self-assembled array that is binding an anionic guest. The role of anions in directing the self-assembly of complex molecular architectures will also be examined.
