This review gives an account of the coordination chemistry, metallo-supramolecular chemistry and application of mono- and oligopyridine-based macrocyclic ligands. For this purpose, recently reported ligands and their metal complexes possessing at least one pyridyl donor group in a cyclic structure as the metal binding site have been selected. The application and prospects of such compounds in different scientific areas have been delineated.
