The search for new synthetic routes leading to coordination polymers with various dimensionalities and network topologies is a hot topic in Crystal engineering. Beyond their beauty, such compounds are particularly interesting in materials science (sorption of gases, selective inclusion of guest molecules, magnetic and luminescent materials, catalysis). In this lecture are will focus on the following topics: (i) 3D coordination polymers mimicking basic crystal structures of inorganic compounds; (ii) extension of the node-and-spacer approach, using oligonuclear complexes as nodes; (iii) magnetic heterometallic complexes containing two and three different paramagnetic metal ions; (iv) luminescent coordination polymers.

Sobre o palestrante:


Marius Andruh is Professor in Coordination Chemistry at the University of Bucharest. He studied Chemistry at the University of Bucharest and received his doctorate in 1988, under the supervision of Professor Maria Brezeanu. He spent one year as a post-doc in Orsay with Professor Olivier Kahn and one and a half year in Göttingen, as an Alexander von Humboldt fellow, in the group of Professor Herbert W. Roesky. His major research interests are focused on metallosupramolecular chemistry, molecular magnetism and crystal engineering. He is a member of the Romanian Academy (2001), of the Academia Europaea (2004), and of the European Academy of Sciences (2010). He was a visiting Professor at several Universities (Bordeaux, Göttingen, Strasbourg, Toulouse, Angers, Manchester, Brno, Jena, Paris, Valencia, Niteroi-Rio de Janeiro) and was awarded the Gauss Professorship from the Akademie der Wissenschaften zu Göttingen (2006). He published 300 papers, which collected more than 9200 citations (h – index: 48).
