Metal Ion Assembly in Macromolecules
Abstract:Self-assembled organic–inorganic hybrid nano-materials have recently received much attention due to their novel and original functions, including new electronic, optical, magnetic, and catalytic properties. Especially, reactions in organic–metallic hybrid materials are closely related to biological reactions, such as the reactions in metal-containing protein, and the controlled metal ions assembly into organic polymers becomes very important. In the first part of this review, recent progresses in two types of organic–inorganic hybrid nano-materials (Organic compounds @ inorganic mesoporous materials and Metal ions @ organic polymer) are summarized. In the latter parts, dendrimer-metal complexes, examples of nature-mimetic materials, are introduced, and their controlled metal assembly in dendrimer and their application are reviewed.
