Suitable for graduate students, master courses and postdocs, this is the first textbook to discuss the whole range of contemporary coordination chemistry. It has been thoroughly reviewed by leading textbook authors, and the concept already proven by the successful Spanish edition. After an introduction, the book covers in a clearly ordered manner structure and bonding, supramolecular coordination chemistry, electronic properties and electron transfer. Set to become the standard for years to come.

Joan Ribas is Professor for Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Barcelona. He is well-known in the scientific community and has 30 years of teaching experience in applied and theoretical inorganic chemistry, especially coordination chemistry. He has published more than 150 publications in this scientific field and written the textbook "Quimica de coordinacion".
“With more than thirty years of experience in science and teaching, Joan Ribas aims to treat not only the traditional aspects that have shaped the field of coordination chemistry for decades, but also the modern approaches and topics like supramolecular and biocoordination chemistry, photochemistry and crystal engineering." (Chimie Nouvelle, March 2010)
Back cover copy
Although coordination chemistry is one of the most important topics in inorganic chemistry, a modern textbook has been lacking for years. With more than thirty years of experience in science and teaching, Joan Ribas aims to treat not only the traditional aspects that have shaped the field of coordination chemistry for decades, but also the modern approaches and topics like supramolecular and bio-coordination chemistry, photochemistry and crystal engineering. The clear and concise concept makes this advanced textbook easy to read and easy to understand. Tedious mathematical or quantum mechanical equations are only utilized when absolutely necessary. This helps graduate and postgraduate students focus on the essentials and guarantees successful courses and exams.
