CHOICE Review

This book's precursor, Figgis's Introduction to Ligand Fields (CH, Nov'66), was a classic. This reviewer used it as a graduate student and then as a professor. The updated book contains a wealth of new material; most chapters have been completely rewritten, and many new topics have been added. Discussions of group theory and molecular orbital theory were deleted since these topics are covered elsewhere. Chapters discuss the concept and scope of ligand field theory as well as some ideas of symmetry and physical properties affected by ligand field theory; quantitative aspects of crystal field theory; angular overlap model of the various geometric structures of metal complexes and calculations based on the ligand field split of the d-orbitals; effect of different ligand fields on the energy levels of the metal ions; thermodynamic effects caused by ligand fields; electronic spectra, magnetic properties, electron paramagnetic resonance spectra, and actinide complexes. The tables and figures are the most valuable parts. No problem sets (highlight of the older edition); new appendixes. Figgis (Univ. of Western Australia) and Hitchman (Univ. of Tasmania) have done an excellent job of bringing an old classic up-to-date and making it very usable for upper-division undergraduates in inorganic chemistry courses and for graduate students and faculty.
