Since when is term "ligand exchange reaction" used in the ALD literature? How has it been defined? How about "exchange reaction" - is it used interchangeably with ligand exchange reaction, or do they have different meanings? A discussion thread to find answers to these questions was just started in the ALD - Atomic Layer Deposition LinkedIn group, link to thread: https://www.linkedin.com/groups/1885076/1885076-6108533900315803648. Comments appreciated!
Thanks to Simon Elliott for proposing ligand exchange reaction in the list of ALD terminology to be discussed.
