At the heart of coordination chemistry lies the coordinate bond, inits simplest sense arising from donation of a pair of electronsfrom a donor atom to an empty orbital on a central metalloid ormetal. Metals overwhelmingly exist as their cations, but these arerarely met ‘naked’ – they are clothed in an arrayof other atoms, molecules or ions that involve coordinate covalentbonds (hence the name coordination compounds). These metal ioncomplexes are ubiquitous in nature, and are central to an array ofnatural and synthetic reactions.

Written in a highly readable, descriptive and accessible styleIntroduction to Coordination Chemistry describes propertiesof coordination compounds such as colour, magnetism and reactivityas well as the logic in their assembly and nomenclature. It isillustrated with many examples of the importance of coordinationchemistry in real life, and includes extensive references and abibliography.

Introduction to Coordination Chemistry is a comprehensiveand insightful discussion of one of the primary fields of study inInorganic Chemistry for both undergraduate and non-specialistreaders.
