This book has been written in a simple and lucid language to help students understand the intricate theories of co-ordination chemistry. Divided into two parts, the first part reviews all the recent developments in the fields of organometallics and co-ordination chemistry. The second part deals with transition and inner transition metals including the study of f-block elements. It was developed with a focus on the need to demystify coordination complexes and transition metals.
