Coordination polymer networks: an alternative to classical polymers ?

Fromm, Katharina M. ; Sagué, Jorge L. ; Mirolo, Laurent

In: Macromolecular Symposia, 2010, vol. 291-292, no. 1, p. 75-83

This chapter of "Polymer Networks: Synthesis, Properties, Theory and Applications" provides a brief overview on metal ion containing coordination polymer networks, how and why they are made, as an alternative to classical polymers. Our focus will be polymorphism, supramolecular isomerism and pseudo-polymorphism. Examples from our group of metal ion containing coordination polymer networks with... Plus

    Summary
    This chapter of "Polymer Networks: Synthesis, Properties, Theory and Applications" provides a brief overview on metal ion containing coordination polymer networks, how and why they are made, as an alternative to classical polymers. Our focus will be polymorphism, supramolecular isomerism and pseudo-polymorphism. Examples from our group of metal ion containing coordination polymer networks with flexible molecules as building blocks will be highlighted, as they might show parallels with purely organic polymer compounds.
