Artificial foldamers were constructed by non-covalent interactions to mimic the structures of biomacromolecules, such as proteins and DNA, which is conducive to a better understanding of the chemical processes at the molecular level in nature. The significant advances in foldamers render it become one of the most important topics in supramolecular chemistry. Coordination bond is widely used in the self-assembly process due to its bond strength and diverse geometry. In this article, we summarize a few types of metal-coordination helical folding systems, including single helicate, double helicates, triple helicates, quadruple helicates and cyclic helicates, and their folding behaviors and structural reconfiguration in the coordination process.

Key words: foldamers, helicates, metal ions, coordination, structural reconfiguration
