Transition Metal Complexes Are Ideal Compounds to Support Energy, Material, Biology, and Catalysis Research

As one of the most active players in the science community, Alfa Chemistry continues to strengthen its leading role as an ISO 9001:2015 certified supplier of high-quality chemicals and materials. Recently, Alfa Chemistry proudly announced its offering of a wide range of transition metal complexes for use in catalysis, material synthesis, photochemistry, and biological research.


Transition metal complexes can also be referred to as coordination complexes. The past decade has witnessed the great potential of transition metal complexes and also the achievements made in both physical and biological sciences. Alfa Chemistry, always keeping a close eye on the latest scientific developments, has observed the prevalence of these coordination complexes and instantly devoted itself to the development of a new product portfolio that includes nearly all varieties of ligands and complexes.


“The activity and selectivity of transition metal catalysts are intimately tied to ligand design. Most transition metals are capable of forming coordination complexes with neutral or anionic ligands,” said one of the senior scientists from Alfa Chemistry. “Simply put, a coordination complex has a central metal ion with a number of ligands arranged around it and is endowed with unique electronic and stereochemical properties. So far, certain application prospects of coordination complexes have been extensively explored, including but not limited to the energy, material, biology, and catalysis applications.”


Hexaamminecobalt(III) chloride ([Co(NH3)6]Cl3, CAS 10534-89-1) and potassium hexachloroplatinate (K2[PtCl6], CAS 16921-30-5) are two good examples of coordination complexes, which both are yellow compounds.


The transition metal complexes supplied by Alfa Chemistry are far-ranged, encompassing the following sub-categories:


Cadmium Complexes, Chromium Complexes, Cobalt Complexes, Copper Complexes, Gold Complexes, Hafnium Complexes, Iridium Complexes, Iron Complexes, Manganese Complexes, Molybdenum Complexes, Nickel Complexes, Niobium Complexes, Osmium Complexes, Palladium Complexes, Platinum Complexes, Rhenium Complexes, Rhodium Complexes, Ruthenium Complexes, Scandium Complexes, Silver Complexes, Tantalum Complexes, Titanium Complexes, Tungsten Complexes, Vanadium Complexes, Yttrium Complexes, Zinc Complexes, Zirconium Complexes, etc.


“Recent advances in inorganic chemistry have made it possible to form a number of transition metal complexes with organic ligands of interest and ultimately serve as therapeutic agents,” the senior scientist further added.
