All coordinated: Coordination polymers are an intriguing class of materials that combines classical and modern metal-coordination chemistry with the often complex formation of large supramolecular structures (see picture). A recent example is the formation of coordination nanotubes, in which the nature of the azine ligand profoundly defines the structure of the resulting assemblies.
