Author affiliations


This chapter reviews the literature published on macrocyclic coordination chemistry during 2012. The aim is to describe the key advances, focusing on complexes formed with transition metal and lanthanide ions. Porphyrin ligands and supramolecular chemistry are not covered. New chelator design, coordination complex formation and characterisation are presented along with details on the most common applications including luminescent compound formation, MRI contrast agents and radiopharmaceuticals.
