Natural antimicrobial peptides represent a primordial mechanism of immunity in both vertebrate and nonvertebrate organisms. Among them, histatins belong to a family of human salivary metal-binding peptides displaying potent antibacterial, antifungal and wound-healing activities. These properties, along with the ability

The node-and-spacer approach is widely employed in crystal engineering to construct coordination polymers. It consists of self-assembly processes involving mononuclear cationic species and exo-dentate ligands. We enlarged this strategy using preformed homo- and heterometallic complexes as nodes. The presence of
