    I am very pleased to see our article is amongst the top 40 articles. Our article was done during our exploration on the construction of open coordination polymers based on metal (or metal clusters) and rod-like rigid organic spacers (or bridging ligands). We found at that time that, mixed neutral and anionic organic ligands could be a very good strategy for the generation of such kind of coordination polymers. This idea was first realized in the mixed terephthalate (tp) and 4,4’-bipyridine (4,4’-bipy) ligands, leading to the publication of this article.

    Since 1972, when I published, for the first time, some papers in Dalton Transactions [“Crystal and molecular structure of monoclinic di-mu-chloro-tris(triphenylphosphine)dicopper(I), Cu2Cl2 (PPh3)3”. V. G. Albano, P. L. Bellon, G. Ciani, M. Manassero. J. Chem. Soc., Dalton Trans., 1972, 171 and “Crystal and molecular structure of dichlorotris-[1,2-bis(diphenylphosphino)ethane]dicopper(I)-bisacetone”. V. G. Albano, P. L. Bellon, G. Ciani. J. Chem. Soc., Dalton Trans., 1972, 1938], I have considered this Journal an excellent and efficient medium for the diffusion of my researches.
    About twenty years ago, when my colleagues and I started our studies on coordination polymers we were aware of the fundamental role that structure, topology and entanglement phenomena in these species could have on their chemical and physical properties. In that time few groups were working on this subject and the relevant literature was very limited. The main way to attempt some rationalization was to produce and characterize many new examples. In that context we have investigated the self-assembly of many inorganic salts and simple, commercially available, polyfunctional organic ligands, like bipy.
    Our article (No. 16) described some polymeric Zn(II) and Fe(II) species with bipy. All the compounds reported contain linear co-ordination polymers interacting via hydrogen bonds to produce two- or three-dimensional networks. We observed the concurrent action of both extended stronger co-ordinative and weaker hydrogen bonds in driving the overall network structures. This suggested us an useful approach in the simplification of complex crystal structures: in coordination networks concurrent chemical forces are often operative, including coordinative bonds, hydrogen bonds, secondary bonds involving the anions, aurophilic metal-metal interactions, p-interactions and others, that face us with the problem of stating when a link is a topologically significant link. We decided that it was necessary to assume a specific level within this hierarchy of forces to be applied in the description of the net. These ideas were developed in successive papers about entanglements (“Polycatenation, polythreading and polyknotting in coordination network chemistry”. L. Carlucci, G. Ciani, D. M. Proserpio. Coord. Chem. Rev., 2003, 246, 247) and interpenetration (“Interpenetrating metal-organic and inorganic 3D networks: a computer-aided systematic investigation. Part 1. Analysis of the Cambridge Structural Database”. V. A. Blatov, L. Carlucci, G. Ciani, D. M. Proserpio. CrystEngComm., 2004, 6, 377) in coordination polymers.

    Best wishes to Dalton Transactions !
