Summary:

In this poster researchers from Claflin University will be presenting their results from a project funded by the Department of Defense. Over all objective of this study is to design, synthesize, characterize metal containing polyhapto ligands and use them as building blocks to synthesize polymetallic supramolecular structures and metallamacrocyclic compounds with potentially useful properties. New complexes synthesized as a part of this study are charcterized using NMR, IR, MS, and single crystal difraction studies.
