A complete, up-to-date treatment of ligand field theory and itsapplications Ligand Field Theory and Its Applications presents anup-to-date account of ligand field theory, the model currently usedto describe the metal-ligand interactions in transition metalcompounds, and the way it is used to interpret the physicalproperties of the complexes. It examines the traditionalelectrostatic crystal field model, still widely used by physicists,as well as covalent approaches such as the angular overlap model,which interprets the metal ligand interactions using parametersrelating directly to chemical behavior.
Written by internationally recognized experts in the field, thisbook provides a comparison between ligand field theory and moresophisticated treatments as well as an account of the methods usedto calculate the energy levels in compounds of the transitionmetals. It also covers physical properties such as stereochemistry,light absorption, and magnetic behavior. An emphasis on theinterpretation of experimental results broadens the book's field ofinterest beyond transition metal chemistry into the many otherareas where these metal ions play an important role.
As clear and accessible as Brian Figgis's 1966 classic Introductionto Ligand Fields, this new book provides inorganic and bioinorganicchemists as well as physical chemists, chemical physicists, andspectroscopists with a much-needed overview of the many significantchanges that have taken place in ligand field theory over the past30 years.
