Abstract

This chapter gives an overview on the synthetic and the structural chemistry of rare earth carboxylates, including monocarboxylates and polycarboxylates. The synthesis, coordination modes and geometries, and solid-state structures are discussed. Special efforts have been made to review the types of the structures and the controls over their syntheses.
