is a real pleasure to me to present this issue of Macromolecular Symposia,
which contains almost all invited papers presented at the Seventh
International Symposium on Macromolecule - Metal Complexes hosted
in The Netherlands in 1997. These symposia have been held every other
year since 1985 in various locations all over the world.
It is also a pleasure to conclude that the meeting again did attract
a large number of distinguished scientists from all parts of the world,
covering a large variety of research topics within the macromolecule-metal
framework. It is to be expected that all readers, including our participants,
will enjoy reading the present issue of Macromolecular Symposia.
The meeting as a whole has been very successful. It has been a stimulating
venue for continuing collaboration and future work. It is our sincere
hope that this issue will further contribute to stimulate, to set up,
to continue, or to intensify international collaborations in this important
