About this Book

In recent years, the utilization of terpyridines both in macromolecular structure assembly and device chemistry has exploded, enabling, for
example, supramolecular polymer architectures with switchable chemical and physical properties as well as novel functional materials
for optoelectronic applications such as light-emitting diodes and solar cells. Further applications include the usage of terpyridines and their
metal complexes as catalysts for asymmetric organic reactions and, in a biological context, as anti-tumor agents or biolabels. This book covers terpyridine-based materials topics ranging from syntheses, chemistry, and multinuclear metal complexes, right up to functionalized polymers, 3D-architectures, and surfaces. Aimed at materials scientists, (in)organic chemists, polymer chemists, complex chemists, physical chemists, biochemists, and libraries.
