Metal coordination complexes at high pressure

What is it about?

Pressures of up to 100,000 atmospheres can change the geometry, shape and packing of molecular solids. This paper is a review of recent advances in the study of coordination complexes at high pressure. The work was carried out in both large central facilities and in people's home laboratories.

Why is it important?

The number of high pressure studies being reported has been increasing rapidly year-by-year. Our review comes at an interesting time and demonstrates the very broad range of materials which have been looked at in this way, but it also stresses the importance of systematic studies.
