Coordination Polymers (CPs)

Coordination Polymers (CPs). Coordination polymers are currently one of the hottest topics in Inorganic and Supramolecular Chemistry. A large amount of work has been carried out in the synthesis and structural characterisation of CPs. This structural control has produced a considerable improvement of the properties associated with these materials. However, most of the work has focused on the study of properties such as catalysis, chirality, luminescence, magnetism, spin-transition (spin-crossover), non-linear optics (NLO), porosity or zeolitic-like behaviour. Electrical conductivy CPs arepromising materials for applications (porous electrode for batteries, fuel cells, capacitors, sensors, nanomaterials, etc). Based on recent results, and in part motivated for the high potential of CPs towards nanotechnological applications our research is focused on this particular aspect.
