This thesis describes the preparation of a series of metallosupramolecular architectures formed with three selected d10 metals, silver(I), copper(I) and zinc(II). A total of sixteen rigid ligands were synthesised, with hindering substituents introduced to the central pyridazine ring, resulting in an interesting series of complexes.
