Abstract : The research described in eighteen technical reports are summarized in this final report. The work accomplished involves the application of macrocyclic ligands to the recognition of small molecules and anions, and the use of the metal complexes of these macrocyclic ligands for molecular recognition and catalysis of reactions of the guest molecules and anions. The reaction types investigated include oxygen carriers, dinuclear copper(l) dioxygen complexes as catalytic intermediates in the oxidation of various substrates by molecular oxygen, the recognition and reactivity of small molecules and anions as guests with hosts consisting of protonated polyaza macrocyclic ligands and their mononuclear and dinuclear metal complexes, and the oxidation of coordinated substrates in dinuclear cobalt macrocyclic complexes containing coordinated dioxygen.
