The primary valences in coordination compounds are non-ionizable and are satisfied by neutral molecules or negative ions.

In coordination compounds, the secondary valence is equal to the coordination number and is fixed for a metal.

According to Werner's theory, metals in coordination compounds show three types of linkages: primary, secondary, and tertiary.

Isomers in coordination compounds have identical properties despite having different empirical formulas.


Explore the world of coordination compounds in inorganic chemistry, where transition metals form complex compounds by sharing electrons with anions or neutral molecules. Learn about new concepts of chemical bonding and molecular structure in this challenging area of modern chemistry.
