Coordination chemistry plays an important role in the designing of inorganic metal complexes, materials, organo-synthesis, biological systems and catalysis. In A Closer Look at Coordination Complexes, novel and evolving developments in the field have been described. The book includes chapters on the synthesis of coordination compounds using different ligand combinations (Schiff base ligands, phosphines, thiolates, ligands with N- and S-donors and so on), biological relevance and catalytic applications of the reported metal complexes. Different aspects of metal complexes, viz. structural and coordination properties of the ligands and complexes and applications viz., asymmetric organic transformations, potential anticancer agents, antibacterial-antioxidant-antifungal properties, alkenes epoxidation, olefins polymerization, nitrogen reduction, hydrogen evolution and oxidation and mercury poisoning treatment reviewed by the authors have been delineated in the eight chapters of the book.
