A complete, up-to-date treatment of ligand field theory and its applications Ligand Field Theory and Its Applications presents an up-to-date account of ligand field theory, the model currently used to describe the metal-ligand interactions in transition metal compounds, and the way it is used to interpret the physical properties of the complexes. It examines the traditional electrostatic 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 parameters relating directly to chemical behavior.

Written by internationally recognized experts in the field, this book provides a comparison between ligand field theory and more sophisticated treatments as well as an account of the methods used to calculate the energy levels in compounds of the transition metals. It also covers physical properties such as stereochemistry, light absorption, and magnetic behavior. An emphasis on the interpretation of experimental results broadens the book's field of interest beyond transition metal chemistry into the many other areas where these metal ions play an important role.

As clear and accessible as Brian Figgis's 1966 classic Introduction to Ligand Fields, this new book provides inorganic and bioinorganic chemists as well as physical chemists, chemical physicists, and spectroscopists with a much-needed overview of the many significant changes that have taken place in ligand field theory over the past 30 years.

MICHAEL A. HITCHMAN, DSc, is Reader in Chemistry at the University of Tasmania.

Review:

"Figgis and Hitchman have done an excellent job of bringing an old classic up-to-date and making it very usable for upper-division undergraduates...and for graduate students and faculty." (Choice, Vol. 38, No. 7, March 2001)

"...[the authors] explain how it [Ligand field theory] is used to interpret the physical properties of the complexes." and faculty." (SciTech Book News, March 2001)

"...serves its purpose with clarity." (Aslib Book Guide, July 2000)

"...a thoroughly re-worked version of an excellent book...excellent as an advanced undergraduate or introductory graduate level course in inorganic chemistry and as a resource for graduate students..." (Journal of Molecular Graphics Modelling, Vol. 19, No. 6, 2001)

"...a well balanced, practical, and readable monograph on an attractive area of inorganic chemistry." (Angewandte Chemie International Edition, Vol. 40 No. 10)

"...thoroughly recommended...an excellent addition to the literature..." (Journal of Chemical Education, Vol. 79, No. 9, September 2002)
