Metal Organic Polyhedra

What is it about?

New well-designed materials are highly demanded with the prospect of versatile properties, offering successful applications as alternates to conventional materials. Major new insights into metal-organic self-assembled structures assisting biochemical purposes have recently emerged

Why is it important?

Key learning points 1. Metal–organic molecular cages. 2. Design and properties of metal–organic polyhedral (MOP) cages. 3. Ionic transport activity and behavior of MOP cages in the ionic environment. 4. Recent developments in MOPs in molecular recognition and imaging. 5. Pharmaceutical applications as drug delivery agents
