Mark Winter is Professor of Chemistry at the University of Sheffield.
`The d-block elements and their complexes can bewilder undergraduates with their multiple oxidation states, geometries, valence electron counts and ligands. Mark Winter's d-block chemistry is a good and approachable introduction to put this bewilderment in context.' Simon Higgins, Chemistry World, September 2015
