100 years after the formulation of the coordination theory by Alfred Werner, stereochemical considerations are again at the center of interest in the development of metal complexes. Reflecting this renewed interest, Stereochemistry of Coordination compoun ds explains the modern aspects of this area of chemistry, firstly by introducing the stereochemistry of various coordination geometries. The later chapters go on to address applications in the field of polynuclear species and stereochemical aspects of rea ctions, including enantioselective catalysis. Provides: · A systematic introduction to the structures of molecular species with atoms of various coordination number, focusing on the most important octahedral case · A presentation of the principles that are applied to produce molecular helices, chains and knots · An account of the historical background of the Stereochemistry of coordination compounds · electronic figure files that are available on the Internet.
