The ability of ligands to bind different metal ions is the basis for the design of dinucleating or polynucleating ligands. Indeed, macrocyclic and macroacyclic compounds have attracted much attention in recent years due to their role in understanding molecular processes that occur in biochemistry, catalysis and material science. For example, much effort has been expended on the construction of coordination polymers and on complexes with double or triple helicate structures. In this review, our recent studies into macrocycles containing tetrazole functional groups are summarised.
