Highly stable olefin–Cu(I) coordination oligomers and polymers

Author affiliations


Highly stable Cu(I)–olefin coordination oligomers and polymers have been successfully prepared and applied to construct metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) with interesting physical and chemical functions in recent years. In this review, we present the olefin–Cu(I) coordination oligomers and polymers and their novel physical properties. From structure to functions, particular emphasis is placed on the coordination and organometallic chemistry of olefin–Cu(I) coordination oligomers and polymers, their structures and potential applications as solids possessing unusual physical functional properties such as electrochemical, chiral separation, fluorescent sensing and ferroelectricity.
