Abstract

Metal-phenolic coordination assembly for the fabrication of multifunctional materials for diverse applications, including catalysis, pharmaceutical, nanomedicine and sensing, has attracted much attention in recent years. However, the bulk of the literature of metal-phenolic materials has been focused on the assembly on hard templates using a single ligand. There is a scope in advancing the field by investigating the versatility of the assembly system in terms of different phenolic ligands, templates and assembly techniques, which could result in novel multifunctional materials. In this thesis, different assembly techniques, particularly the use of hard and soft templates and self-assembly, w..
