Metallosupermolecule, Metal containing polymer, Macuromolecular Metal-complex
The last few years have brought a boom in the area of metal-containing material systems, both in supramolecular and polymer chemistry as well as nanoscience. Besides advanced knowledge on metallopolymers regarding synthesis, characterization and physicochemical property have been apparent. Moreover, recently a growing interest in the application of these materials can be seen. Potential applications are identified in the areas of smart or intelligent materials, systems with elector-photo-chemical properties, nanoscience, as well as materials with thermal and mechanical properties. This session covers the wide range of metal-containing polymers and materials from the world-leading groups. The topics of this session include design, synthesis, characterization as well as selected applications.
