Abstract

Labile metal complexes have a useful coordination bond; which is weaker than a covalent C–C bond and is reversibly and dynamically formed and dissociated. Such labile metal complexes also can be used to construct chiral shapes and offer dynamic conversion of chiral molecular shapes in response to external stimuli. This review provides recent examples of chirality induction and describes the dynamic conversion systems produced by chiral metal complexes including labile metal centers, most of which respond to external stimuli by exhibiting sophisticated conversion phenomena.
