This book describes the coordination chemistry of macrocyclic ligands. Common types of ligands are introduced and strategies for the synthesis of the free ligands and their metal complexes are discussed. It describes the unique thermodynamic and kinetic properties of macrocyclic complexes and presents important applications. The book is suitable for advanced undergraduate or graduate students and assumes a knowledge of organic and inorganic chemistry at the second-year undergraduate level.
