This book is divided in two volumes. Volume I covers all important nomenclature, theories of bonding and stereochemistry of coordination complexes. The authors have made an effort to inscribe the ideas knowledgeably, clearly and in an interesting way to benefit the readers. The complexities of Molecular Orbital theory have been explained in a very simple and easy manner. The second volume deals with transition and inner transition metals. It gives practical shape to the theories and ideas expressed in Part I. Conceptually, all transition and inner transition elements form complexes which have a definite geometry and show interesting properties. General and specific methods of preparation, physical and chemical properties of each element has been discussed at length. Group wise study of elements in d-block series have been explained. Important compounds, complexes and organometallic compounds of metals in different oxidation states have been given explicitly. The study of lanthanides and actinides has been covered extensively. General characteristics, physical and chemical properties have been explained in detail. Block wise study of elements is taken up so as to convey every minute detail. Important compounds of different oxidation states have been discussed along with their uses. In 5f-block actinides, preparation of transuranium elements, separation of metals from one another and the last set of element has been detailed adequately. Care has been taken to cover all the important aspects. The elements which are yet to be discovered have been listed and their stability explained. Comparison between the properties of lanthanides and actinides has been clearly spelt out. This book will strengthen the conceptual and explanatory approach of the readers and complete the circle of knowledge regarding the coordination complexes and transition metals.
