Open access peer-reviewed Edited Volume



The book Ligand describes the diversity and versatility of ligands, covering structural features, donor-acceptor properties and secondary functions like molecular recognition. Moreover, this book also provides a comprehensive account on the applicability like catalysis, sensors, supramolecular assembly, photochemical property, bioinorganic chemistry, and so on. The advancement of fundamentals in ligand design and the control of physicochemical properties of coordination compounds has largely increased emphasis on understanding the structural and electronic features toward different perspectives in materials science. In this regard, this book has a special appeal to chemists, biologists and others. This book will be beneficial for the graduate students, teachers, researchers and other professionals who are interested to fortify and expand their knowledge in chemistry, biology, microbiology, biotechnology, materials science, environmental science and so on.
