Supramolecular Coordination Complexes: Design, Synthesis, and Applications discusses the growth of the field and explores the advantages, opportunities and latest applications of supramolecular complexes. Beginning with an introduction to design principles, synthetic methods, and post-synthetic functionalization of supramolecular complexes, the book goes on to compile the different analytical and computational modeling methods used to understand the structure and functional properties of supramolecular structures. Applications of supramolecular complexes in biomedicine, sensing, catalysis and materials are then explored in detail. Drawing on the knowledge of a global team of experts, this book provides a wealth of interesting information for students and researchers working in the design, synthesis or application of such complexes.

About the Editor

Sankarasekaran Shanmugaraju

Dr. Sankarasekaran Shanmugaraju received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Chemistry from The American College, Madurai and he obtained his Ph.D. degree (honored with a gold medal for the best thesis) in Inorganic Chemistry working with Prof. Partha Sarathi Mukherjee from Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore. After a short postdoctoral stint at IISc, in 2014 he moved to Trinity College Dublin, Ireland to work with Prof. Thorfinnur Gunnlaugsson as an IRC postdoctoral fellow. Since October 2018, he has been an Assistant professor at the Indian Institute of Technology Palakkad. The central theme of his group's current research interests is in the areas of supramolecular self-assembly formation of functional materials and porous polymers for their applications in biomedicine and environmental related-issues. Dr. Shanmugaraju has published 34 high-quality publications in peer-reviewed international journals and a book chapter. His publications have been cited over 1773 times to date.
