Pressure Effects in Inorganic Solution Chemistry
A metal cation M in Solution can be pictured as being surrounded by a geometrically well-defined first coordination sphere (c.s.) consisting of ligands L and X (which could be solvent molecules, Sol) and a second c.s. of centripetally-oriented Sol and possibly other species Y; beyond the second c.s. lies bulk solvent which may contain free Y. In this paper, we consider the contribution of the study of pressure effects to the understanding of the mechanism of exchange of X, Y, L, and Sol between these three regions.
