Survey of the properties of the transition metals with emphasis on
common oxidation levels, coordination geometries and compounds
with “classical” ligands, “hard” and “soft” acids and bases: d-
orbitals and their energies in different geometries; formation
constants and the Chelate Effect, the Jahn Teller theorem; low-,
intermediate, and high-spin systems; mixed valency; metal-ligand
multiple-bonding, metal-metal bonds; coordination clusters and their
biological relevance.
