Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to present a Special Issue entitled "Design, Synthesis and Characterization of Ligands and Corresponding Metal Complexes". We believe that this Issue will be of interest to the experts in the field of the design and study of molecules capable of forming complexes with metal atoms, as well as those who engage in the synthesis and investigations of these complexes.

Research interest in such structures is due to various reasons: (1) the structural diversity of possible combinations of different ligands and metal centers, (2) the synergism of properties of the ligand fragment and the complexing metal, and (3) the prospects for practical applications of such complexes, such as catalysts (or fragments of catalysts), pharmaceuticals, model compounds, corrosion inhibitors, etc.

This Special Issue of Processes provides an opportunity to present the results related to the study of molecules with potential ligand parameters and the corresponding metal complexes. We aim to monitor new advances in the Design, Synthesis and Characterization of Ligands and Corresponding Metal Complexes.

We welcome any studies related to the development, creation and research of new diversified ligands, as well as ligands derived from natural compounds (polysaccharides, amino acids, etc.), including modified ones, and the methods for the design and study of metal complexes with different ligands.

We will also consider contributions focused on the creation of original concepts for the directed synthesis of ligands containing several simultaneous potential coordination centers, which have different natures and properties with respect to the complexing metal. This will allow us to significantly expand the variability of new catalytic systems, study the effect of the ligand structure on the selectivity and performance of catalysts, and create new potential systems with pronounced high-luminescent properties.

The present review is devoted to the application of transition metal complexes with such ligands as amino acids, peptides and carbohydrates in catalysis. The literature published over the past 20 years is surveyed. Among the distinctive features of these ligands are their versatility, optical activity, stability and availability. Furthermore, depending on the specific synthetic task to be solved, these ligands open up almost infinite opportunity for modification. Largely thanks to their multifaceted reactivity, transition metal complexes with amino acids, peptides and carbohydrates can catalyze most of the known chemical reactions affording optically pure compounds. In this review, the emphasis is placed upon C(sp3)–H activation, cross-coupling and hydrogenation (including traditional hydrogenation in the presence of hydrogen gas and hydrogenation with hydrogen transfer) reactions. The choice is not accidental, since these reactions on the one hand display the catalytic versatility of the above complexes, and on the other hand, they are widely employed in industry. Full article
