About the book
Coordination Compounds: Bonding, Structure and Nomenclature covers material that includes important topics in Inorganic Chemistry for undergraduates. It provides students with a detailed account of the bonding theories and their applications in understanding and predicting the properties of transition metal complexes, the structural aspects associated with these complexes and an up-to-date coverage of their nomenclature. The book is extensively illustrated with clear informative diagrams and includes worked examples and exercises. The contents are provided in a way that students will find both understandable and enjoyable.
