Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialOtherpeer-review


Efforts towards the incorporation of main group elements in polynuclear motifs or in the coordination sphere of transition metals have been a prevalent theme of coordination chemistry, and one that has delivered notable advances in the area of structure and bonding. In the past decade, this field has witnessed an increased emphasis on the influence of the main group moiety over the reactivity or physical properties of the resulting constructs. Through a collection of both invited and selected articles, this themed issue puts the spotlight on this developing field, while at the same time illustrating far-reaching applications in the areas of small molecule activation, catalysis and molecular magnetism.
