The title topic is reviewed. Under coordination chemistry, special attention is given to Werner complexes, the trans effect, soft and hard ligands, crystal and ligand field (LF) models, together with oxidation state and coordination number. Under organometallic chemistry, the main topics include electroneutrality, back bonding, the 18-electron rule, and effects of complexation.
