The coordination chemistry explains the chemistry, physical properties, structure, bonding, and other properties of the compounds of d-block elements. In the current chapter, we have discussed the coordination chemistry of networking complexes of d-block elements. The networking complexes of d-block elements comprise of metal organic frameworks (MOF) also known as coordination polymers. In this context, the geometry around central metal atom of MOFs has been discussed to explain their different properties. Different theoretical approaches (like hybridization, valance bond theory, molecular orbital theory, and crystal field theory) have been utilized to explain the properties of some selected exemplary compounds, e.g., [Ag(1,4-pyrazine)1.5CF3SO3], [[Cu(3,4-Hpdc)2 (H2O)2]·2dmso]n, and [Zn(II)(SEPCPU)]n.
