Metallofoldamers are oligomers that fold into three–dimensional structures in a controlled manner upon coordination with metal ions. Molecules in this class have shown an impressive ability to form single–handed helical structures and other three–dimensional architectures.
Metallofoldamers are oligomers that fold into three–dimensional structures upon coordination with metal ions, and show an ability to form helical structures and other three–dimensional architectures. Several metallofoldamers have been applied as sensors due to their selective folding when binding to a specific metal ion, while others show promise for applications as responsive materials on the basis of their ability to fold and unfold upon changes in the oxidation state of the coordinated metal ion. Metallofoldamers: Supramolecular Architectures from Helicates to Biomimetics describes thevariety of interactions between oligomers and metal species, with a focus on non–natural synthetic molecules. Topics covered include: Extract from Foreword by Nobel Prize Laureate Jean–Marie Lehn “The editors have to be congratulated for assembling a remarkable roster of active players in the field, who deserve our warmest thanks for their expert contributions.” metalloproteins and metallopeptides introduction to un–natural foldamers helicates: self–assembly, structure and applications metallo–PNA and DNA interactions of biomimetic oligomers with metal ions applications of metallofoldamers
