This work reports some original and significant contributions on chiral coordination complexes. Complexes of chiral amino alcohols based Schiff base ligands with biologically and catalytically important metal ions have been developed and studied with respect to their structural, spectroscopic, supramolecular and catalytic properties. The importance of chiral amino alcohol based Schiff base ligands in coordination chemistry is briefly discussed in the introduction chapter. Synthetic details and spectroscopic characterization data of some new chiral Schiff base ligands and their metal complexes are presented in chapter two. Detailed studies on a series of biologically and catalytically relevant chiral Mn(IV) complexes form the content of the third chapter. A series of interesting mixed valence multinuclear cobalt complexes of chiral amino alcohol based ligands has been described in chapter four. Studies on some chiral copper complexes highlighting their structural and supramolecular properties are presented in fifth chapter. Finally, the work is concluded giving an overall summary as the sixth chapter.
