Although several books have been published in this field, there is not an advanced book focusing on coordination chemistry with systematic introduction of basic knowledge, application technology and the latest developments. With this book, readers will gain proficiencies in systematic basic aspects and the latest development of applications of rare earth coordination chemistry. Topics include the configuration of rare earth elements at ground states; –diketonate lanthanide complexes; rare earth complexes with carboxylic acids, polyaminopolycarboxlic acids and amino acids; the coordination chemistry of rare earth alkoxides, aryloxides and hydroxides; organometallic lanthanide chemistry; rare earth coordination chemistry with fullerene as ligands; N–based rare earth complexes; rare earth polyoxometalate complexes; lanthanide–based magnetic molecular materials; gadolinium complexes as MRI contrast agents for diagnosis; photoluminescence and electroluminescence based on lanthanide complexes in visible range; Near–infrared (NIR) luminescence from lanthanide complexes; chemical and biological applications of luminescent rare earth complexes.
