These ligands may act as bidentate through N,O-, tridentate N,O,O-, N,O,N-, N,O,S-, tetradentate N,N,O,O-, and hexadentate N,N,O,O,S,S-donor ligands [17-23], which can be designed to yield mononuclear or binuclear complexes or one-dimensional (1D), two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) metal-organic frameworks [24-31].
For instance, with increased level of nitrogen contents in creosotebush (Larrea tridentate) plants, the populations of sucking insect pests were found to increase, but the number of chewing insects turned down (Altieri and Nicholls, 2003).
and combinations thereof and an electrodepositable binder, the binder is comprised of resin(s) comprised of a phosphorous-containing group in which X is a hydrogen, a monovalent hydrocarbon or an oxygen atom having a single covalent bond to the phosphorous atom, and each oxygen atom has a covalent bond to a hydrogen atom, an alkyl group, an aryl group, an alkylaryl group, an arylalkyl group, or the resin or one of the resins, with the caveat that at least one oxygen atom has a covalent bond to the resin or one of the resins; a carboxylate group separated by from 2-4 carbons from an ester group; and a tridentate amine ligand.
