Introduction. The purpose of this handout is to provide a simple model for the bonding in transition-metal complexes as a framework for understanding and interpreting the most important properties of these complexes. We shall deal mostly with the...

In class, we have used the Valence Bond (VB) approach to understand chemical
bonding. At the qualitative level, VB is relatively easy to use and does not require a deep
knowledge of quantum mechanics and group theory. The electron-dot formalism of...
