  • You are not expected to know kinetics for 2330, so skim over these parts. These sections are written from an organometallic chemistry perspective in which all of the electrons from the metal (the d electrons) and those donated by the ligand are counted. Many organometallic complexes have 18 electrons although it is common to have less.
