Coordination compound

What is the difference between tm complex, organometallic complex and coordination compound, if any?

I don't believe there is any difference between these terms. They are all different, interchangeable ways to identify the compounds we have been discussing in lecture.

I'm not sure about tm vs organometallic, but a complex is defined as "a species consisting of a central atom or ion to which a number of molecules or ions are attached by coordinate covalent bonds" and a coordination compound is basically a compound where at least one of the ions present is a complex.

I believe they are all just synonyms of each other

What is the difference between a complex ion and a coordination compound?
