Introduction of Werner’s theory:

The systematic study of coordination compounds was started by a very famous Swiss scientist Alfred Werner whose pioneering work opened an entirely new field of investigation in inorganic chemistry. He prepared and characterized a large number of coordination compounds and studied their physical, chemical and isomeric behaviour by simple experimental techniques. On the basis of these studies. Werner, in 1898, propounded his theory of coordination compounds. Which is later termed as Werner’s Theory of Coordinate Compounds. Due to this theory he is awarded by Nobel prize and he is also called the ‘Father of Coordination Chemistry’.
