About this book


The generation of novel redox systems under nano-space control is one of the most exciting fields in present organic, inorganic, and supramolecular chemistry. The authors have drawn together the newest information on the construction of such novel redox systems using nano-space control of complexation or molecular chain-induced spaces and metal- or self-assembled spaces through combining techniques in coordination, supramolecular, and bio-inspired chemistry. Such design on the nano level produces hybrid conjugated systems composed of transition and synthetic metals, metallohosts, redox-active self-assembled monolayers of helical peptides, DNA-directed metal arrays, photoactive antibody systems, chiral rotaxanes, and redox-active imprinted polymers. In the future, these systems will be the basis for novel selective electron-transfer reactions as well as new functional materials and catalysts.
