2009_20/2009Towards Molecular Wires Based on Metal-Organic Frameworks (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 20/2009)

The cover picture shows an Atomic Force Microscopy image of single chains based on a one-dimensional oxalato-bridged manganese(II) complex with 4-aminotriazole isolated on a graphite surface. The inset shows the height profile of two of these chains. This is an example of the results obtained in the adsorption of coordination polymers on surfaces. The Microreview by F. Zamora et al. on p. 2885 ff focuses on the state-of-the-art experimental procedures for the isolation of single chains of these supramolecules and on different pathways to obtain molecular assemblies. Potential applications of these compounds as molecular wires are also presented.
