Nanoarchitectonics of heterometallic multinuclear complexes

10 Jan, 2011

One of the most challenging issues in the field of inorganic chemistry would be to develop a rational synthetic methodology for heterometallic multinuclear complexes. The research team answered this tough question by applying the Merrifield solid-phase synthesis for coupling of various metal complex monomers.
