The issue contains plenary and invited lectures delivered at the 10th IUPAC International Symposium on Macromolecule-Metal Complexes (MMC-10), which took place from 18-23 May, 2003 in a boat travelling from Moscow along the Volga river. The first International symposium on Macromolecule-Metal Complexes was organized in 1985 in Beijing. The series of MMC symposia have been held every two years in variety of locations all over the world (Italy, Germany, China, Netherlands, Japan, USA).
This symposium provides an international forum for presentation and discussion about the most recent progress and future trends in the rapidly expanding interdisciplinary field of macromolecular metal complexes. The symposium was focused on the role of metal ions, complexes and clusters in macromolecular systems.
One hundred and twenty participants from 15 countries and 4 continents attended MMC-10. In addition to 6 plenary and 18 invited lectures, contributed papers were presented in 18 oral contributions and 64 posters. The scientific program of 10th symposium was centred around a number of fundamental and applied topics such as: fundamental aspects of macromolecule metal complexes (synthesis, structure, properties), electron and photonic transfer, catalysis and separation processes, supramolecules, dendrimers, molecular recognition, metal ion conductive polymers, environmental application of MMC. Plenary and invited lectures covered each topic of the symposium, providing an excellent foundation for the discussions and certainly serving as hints for further developments in the field of macromolecular metal complexes.
The 11th International Symposium on Macromolecule-Metal Complexes will be held in 2005 in Pisa, Italy. Finally the editors would like to thank all who have contributed to this symposium and express particular appreciation to them.
