carboxylic acids and carboxylates are mainly responsible for this chelation in large number of mono and multidentate ligands.
NOVEL MULTIDENTATE NHC LIGANDS FOR THE USE IN ASYMMETRIC METATHESIS
The Tuesday afternoon session focussed on [pi]-conjugated poly metallacyclopent adienes, supramolecular organomanganese coordination polymers, cationic iron azobenzene-substituted polymers, highly metallized PFSs containing cobalt clusters as lithographic resists, the electrochemical behaviour of organoiron and ruthenium polymers, oligo-phenylazomethine derivatives as multidentate ligands, dizinc 1,3-dicarboxylate clusters with nitrogen coordinating ligands, conjugated metallopolymers as chemically tunable electrical conductors and luminescent materials and iridium polymers as oxygen sensors.
Bidentate to multidentate spines and coarse-pectinate scales clustered in distinct patches on ventral surfaces of last four segments.
Proanthocyanidins are known to form a complex with proteins, due to the fact that the formers can act as multidentate ligands and thus are able to bind simultaneously more than one point to the protein surface (Nagabhusan et al.
Key statement: The present invention is directed to a rubber composition comprising: a functionalized elastomer comprising a polymeric backbone chain derived from a monomer comprising at least one conjugated diene monomer and optionally at least one vinyl aromatic monomer; and a functional group bonded to the backbone chain, the functional group comprising a multidentate ligand capable of complexing with a metal ion; and an encapsulated metal salt.
Multidentate Schiff base ligands have been widely studied in coordination chemistry due to their facile synthesis and interesting properties like good solubility in common solvents, their ability to reversibly bind oxygen and complexing ability towards some toxic transition metals.

A relatively high degree of irreversibility is consistent with specific sorption of Cu via complexation by multidentate ligands on surfaces of solid-phase organic matter (McBride 1994).
Forty sections treat ligand whose donor atoms come from a single group in the priodic table, ligands with mixed donors, and multidentate macrocyclic ligands.
Bearing in the mind the development of multidentate ligands with varying combinations of donor atoms and ligands, the synthesis and characterization of asymmetrically substituted b -ketoiminate ligands such as N-(2-((2,6-diisopropylphenylimino)methyl) phenyl)benzene-1,2-diamine was undertaken.
