Current attention continues to revolve around the chemistry and biochemistry associated with polyphosphate anions because of their importance in biology. A pivotal intermediate within this family is the pyrophosphate tetraanion, P2O74-. Considering its biological relevance and the multidentate nature that makes it an ideal ligand in the field of the coordination chemistry, there is a growing interest in the use of this anion in building new class of molecules/compounds for different purposes. While the total number of characterized structures still remains modest, several new pyrophosphate-containing coordination complexes have been reported in the last decade, as well as different solid-state structures. This review focuses on the structural, magnetic, and biological properties of coordination complexes incorporating the pyrophosphate ligand reported to date. © 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
