1 Introduction Selenium- and tellurium-containing analogues of urea and its N -substituted derivatives have received increasing attention in the last few decades. These heavy chalcogenoureas (HCUs) have been investigated in many areas from fundamental structural and coordinationchemistry to applications in material science [ 1 , 2 ], medicine [ 3 ], and biochemistry [ 4 , 5 , 6 ]. A large number of compounds fall into this distinction, and this chapter will focus in particular on cyclic seleno- and telluroureas, which are formally chalcogen derivatives of
CoordinationChemistry 25–30 July 2010, Adelaide, Australia The 39th International Conference on CoordinationChemistry (ICCC39) will bring together the world’s leading coordination chemists to showcase the latest developments in this field. Topics from fundamental coordinationchemistry will be combined with chemistry topics that specifically address the pressing concerns of the 21st century (such as energy, environmental, and medicinal chemistry) to give comprehensive coverage in parallel streams. There will be a full range of plenary, keynote, and contributed
9–13 September 2012, Valencia, Spain
The 40 International Conference on CoordinationChemistry (ICCC40) will be held 9–13 September 2012 at the Congress Palace in Valencia, Spain. ICCC is the longest-running conference series in the field of coordinationchemistry. It started in 1950 and has now become a premiere venue for discussion of the latest developments in this area of chemistry. The ICCC is coming back to Europe for the first time since 2002 (the most recent editions took place in Heidelberg, Germany, 2002

From 21-26 July 2002, the International Conference on CoordinationChemistry (ICCC) took place in Heidelberg, Germany. More than 1100 chemists from 57 nations traveled to the scientific metropolis at the Neckar river to report on and discuss the latest progress in coordinationchemistry in 223 lectures and 768 poster presentations. Since 1950, the ICCC, which usually
_ CoordinationChemistry by Klaus R. Koch The 37th International CoordinationChemistry Conference (37th ICCC) was held 13–18 August 2006 at the new, centrally located Cape Town International Convention Centre in Cape Town, South Africa. This was indeed a historic occasion in the scientific development of coordinationchemistry in South Africa, as it represents the first time in the more than 50-year history of the ICCC series that such an important event was hosted on African soil. This event was the culmination of an 18-year bidding process, which started at

In this article, we focus on the impact of Werner’s ideas and discoveries in metal coordinationchemistry on modern medicinal inorganic chemistry. This review does not aim to be comprehensive and is restricted largely to examples of precious metal coordination

Abstract: Superior electrocatalysts for the reduction of 0 2 by four-
electrons in one step have been prepared by coordinating ammine
complexes of Ru(II) to the pyridine ligand sites in cobalt tetrakis(4-
pyridyl) porphyrin. At least three coordinated Ru(I1) centers
