The development of novel ligands for the complexation of transition metal ions in inorganic chemistry is a rapidly developing field of study. The broad objective of this work is to design novel tripodal transition metal based receptors of (TPA) frame work which can act as hosts for small molecules (guests) e.g. fluoride and succinate. In addition, investigation into the co-ordination chemistry of those receptors with first row transition metals were explored using variety of characterizing techniques such as: Infrared Spectroscopy (IR), Electronic transitions (UV-Vis), Mass Spectrometry (MS), Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), Cyclic voltammetry (CV) and Single Crystal Diffractometer (X-Ray). Mono, Bis and Tris thiourea tripodal ligands have been synthesised and their co ordination chemistry has been investigated (chapter 2, 3 and 4) as well as the binding studies of the bisthiourea (chapter 3) to bind: fluoride and succinate using *H NMR titration technique. The co-ordination chemistry of TPPA with some first row transition metals has been studied and it was expected to show high affinity for seven coordination sphere and indeed it has shown strong preference for mono capped octahedral geometry (chapter 5).
