Coordination supramolecules with oxazoline-containing ligands

Author affiliations


Coordination supramolecules (CSs), constructed by assembly of metal ions/clusters (referred to as nodes) and organic bridging ligands (referred to as linkers), are a class of inorganic–organic hybrid materials. The key to construct such functional materials is the careful choice of organic linkers due to their readily tailored nature. The geometry, rigidity and types of organic linkers, especially together with elaborately decorated functional groups, certainly exert influence on the structures of CSs, as well as the structure-driven properties. In this highlight, we will focus on the recent development of CSs with oxazoline-containing ligands, including discrete coordination complexes and coordination polymers. This highlight will be beneficial to researchers attempting the design and synthesis of oxazoline-based CSs.
