Abstract

In this report we attempt to describe and review the employment of α-amino acid ligands for the construction of metallic complexes. We focus our interest on the synthesis of discrete polynuclear Mn (n ≥ 3; M = d–, f– and 3d–4f metal ions) complexes containing natural occurring or artificial α-amino acid ligands, and we briefly discuss their magnetic properties, where this is feasible. Polymeric species, coordination polymers and chains are not included in this review, due to space limitations. Finally, metallic clusters with macrocyclic ligands, and poly-peptides ligands are not included in this survey.
