This paper presents the recent developments in designing multi-component structures including metal-organic frameworks containing Lewis acidic metal ions. The emphasis has been given to understand the design elements adopted to synthesize such structures bearing Lewis acidic metal ion. Further, few important Lewis acidic metal catalysed organic transformation reactions have been discussed demonstrating the importance of such materials for practical purposes.

Several pyridine-amide compounds appended with phenol/catechol groups are synthesized. These compounds consist of protected or deprotected phenol/catechol groups and offer pyridine, amide, and phenol/catechol functional groups. All compounds have been well-characterized by various spectroscopic methods, elemental analysis, thermal studies, and crystallography. The biological activities of all compounds were investigated while a few compounds significantly decreased the metabolic viability, growth and clonogenicity of T98G cells in dose dependent manner. Accumulation of ROS was observed in T98G cells, which displayed a compromised redox status as evident from increased cellular Caspase 3/7 activity and formation of micronuclei. The

The field of coordination polymers (CPs) has grown rapidly in the recent time and exemplifies one of the most exciting fields in the solid state and structural chemistry. In order to search for new CPs with desirable structural features and attractive functional properties, various synthetic strategies have been adopted including the challenging metalloligand approach. This approach relies on developing a metalloligand that is capable of placing the appended functional groups to limited directions thus resulting in limited structural variations—alandmark step towards predictable architectures. Consequently, a variety of metalloligands offering assorted functional groups have been developed and explored for the construction of noteworthy CPs. This perspective article summarizes an important class of metalloligands offering appended carboxylic acid groups with a focus on the design strategies to understand the architectures of the resultant CPs being controlled by the metalloligands. In addition, a concise discussion has been included about the applications of selected CPs to demonstrate their practical utilization.
