A coordination complex is a potentially charged complex consisting of a central transition (d-block) metal and its attached ligands, which are Lewis bases that can be either ions or molecules.

A coordination compound is a neutral compound in which one of the ions is the coordination complex.

A coordination bond is a covalent bond in which the Lewis base provides both electrons to be shared.
