Swiss chemist whose research into the structure of coordination compounds
brought him the 1913 Nobel Prize for Chemistry.
In 1891 Werner presented his great contribution, coordination theory,
which permitted a simple classification of inorganic compounds and extended
the concept of isomerism. He and his students prepared many new series
of compounds and fitted them into the new system. Though his views have
been modified slightly, they are fundamental to modern inorganic chemistry
and prepared the way for modern concepts of chemical bonding.
