A coordination sphere is the central metal ion plus the attached ligands of a coordination compound. There is a difference between the first and second coordination spheres which I don't think we are going to go into depth about ... but the first sphere refers to the molecules that are attached directly to the metal and are in most cases, solvent. The interactions between the first and second coordination spheres usually involve h - bonding.
