Abstract

There has been a growing interest in the study of d⁸ and d¹⁰ transition-metal complexes due to their intriguing properties associated with homometallic and heterometallic noncovalent metal metal interactions; the presence of which has been investigated and confirmed by various techniques including x-ray crystallography, Raman spectroscopy, photophysical studies, and theoretical calculations. Apart from the solid state, the observation of noncovalent metal metal interactions in solution state has been suggested to provide additional functions for applications in chemosensing and construction of supramolecular assemblies. Further discoveries on applications of noncovalent interactions are anticipated to open up research dimensions of unlimited possibilities and opportunities. Copyright © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.
