  author={Jaroslaw Polanski and Daniel Lach and Maciej Kapkowski and Piotr Bartczak and Tomasz Siudyga and Adam Smoliński},
Privileged structures is a term that is used in drug design to indicate a fragment that is popular in the population of drugs or drug candidates that are in the application or investigation phases, respectively. Privileged structures are popular motifs because they generate efficient drugs. Similarly, some elements appear to be more efficient and more popular in catalyst design and development. To indicate this fact, we use here a term privileged metal combination. In particular, Ru-based…
