Distributed adaptive synchronization control for complex dynamical networks with nonlinear derivative coupling is proposed. The distributed adaptive strategies are constituted by directed connections among nodes. By means of the parameters separation, the nonlinear functions can be transformed into the linearly form. Then effective distributed adaptive techniques are designed to eliminate the effect of time-varying parameters and made the considered network synchronize a given trajectory in the sense of square error norm. Furthermore, the coupling matrix is not assumed to be symmetric or irreducible. An example shows the applicability and feasibility of the approach.
