Summary

The uses and diversity of metal-containing polydyes are reviewed. The potential for such polydyes has been only briefly touched upon and a large potential exists for medical, electronic, catalytic, photonic, and separations applications. There exists a large degree of freedom with respect to the choice of the metal, metal oxidation number, combination of metals, dyes, and the use of combinations of dyes. This allows those with a good imagination to see a whole host of problems for which such metal-containing polydyes might offer a solution.
