At the heart of coordination chemistry lies the coordinate bond, in
its simplest sense arising from donation of a pair of electrons
from a donor atom to an empty orbital on a central metalloid or
metal. Metals overwhelmingly exist as their cations, but these are
rarely met ?naked? ? they are clothed in an array
of other atoms, molecules or ions that involve coordinate covalent
bonds (hence the name coordination compounds). These metal ion
complexes are ubiquitous in nature, and are central to an array of
natural and synthetic reactions.

Written in a highly readable, descriptive and accessible style
Introduction to Coordination Chemistry describes properties
of coordination compounds such as colour, magnetism and reactivity
as well as the logic in their assembly and nomenclature. It is
illustrated with many examples of the importance of coordination
chemistry in real life, and includes extensive references and a

Introduction to Coordination Chemistry is a comprehensive
and insightful discussion of one of the primary fields of study in
Inorganic Chemistry for both undergraduate and non-specialist
