About this book

This unique reference details current research on the formation and stabilities of metal complexes, chelates, macrocyclic complexes, and cryptates in aqueous solutions. Chapters thoroughly describe the principles of ligand design and their application to a wide variety of metal ions. In addition, the text examines medicinal and biochemical applications of metal complexes. This work will make an invaluable supplementary text for advanced inorganic chemistry courses.


Introductory Overview. Factors Governing the Formation of Complexes with Unidentate Ligands in Aqueous Solution: Some General Considerations. Chelating Ligands. Complexes of Macrocycles and Other More Highly Preorganized Ligands. Medical Applications of Metal Complexes. The Selectivity of Ligands of Biological Interest for Metal Ions in Aqueous Solution: Some Implications for Biology. Stability Constants and Their Measurements. Index.
