    • Abstract

       

      Helical self-assembled coordination complexes are broadly classified under linear and circular helicates. While the number of strands of the ligand units in a molecule of the linear helicates is used for further classifications such as single-stranded, double-stranded and so on, the circular helicates are not classified further. The compositions of helicates are considered as MxLy where the terms x and y stand for the number of metal ion(s) and ligand strands, respectively. However, more than one type of metal centers/ligand in helicates are also known. The linear helicates of a given number of strands are further classified under the number of metal centers such as binuclear, trinuclear and so on. Representative examples are included to exemplify the varieties of helicates.
