Sample text

Metal–ligand coordination is an attractive force characterized by a wide range of properties as a function of the combination of metal and coordinating atom and lies in between covalent bonds and weak interactions. Geometric aspects like distance and directionality between the two counterparts are crucial issues when discussing weak intermolecular forces except in the case of ionic attractions [20]. From this point of view, metal–ligand coordination offers a high level of geometrical control over the assembly together with the possible presence of stereogenic centers directly implemented, or in close vicinity to the metal center.
