Abstract

Statistics, including averages, for lengths of metal–ligand bonds are reported, together with some intraligand distances, for complexes of the d‐ and f‐block metals. Mean values are presented for 325 different bond types involving metal atoms bonded to H, B, C, N, O, F, Si, P, S, Cl, As, Se, Br, Te or I atoms of the ligands.
