Theories of Bonding in Complex Compounds

  • David Nicholls
Part of the A Macmillan Chemistry Text book series


Studies of the magnetic properties of complex compounds have played a very important part in discussions of bonding theories. We must first consider elementary magnetism before the bonding theories are introduced. A more detailed account of the magnetic properties of transition metal ions will be met in chapter 7.
