The self-assembly process is a natural phenomenon with the ability to organize biological systems. Its development by chemists as a synthetic process allowed the formation of esthetical structures as well as highly complex supramolecular systems with remarkable biological functions. Since 1990, metal directed self-assembly strategy has largely contributed to the design and synthesis of discrete...

Arene Ruthenium Assemblies for Biological Applications : From Carceplex to Host-Guest Metalla-Cages

Barry, Nicolas ; Süss-Fink, Georg (Dir.) ; Therrien, Bruno (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2011 ; 2192.

Since the development of supramolecular chemistry in the 1980s more and more discrete molecular objects have been synthesised. In this research area metals play a key role. Indeed, the coordination-driven self-assembly allows a directional-bonding approach that organises the different building blocks into supramolecular objects according to the coordination modes of the transition metal....
