I believe that a majority of the time, only transition metals are able to form coordination compounds and are the central atoms of them. This is because they normally do not make bonds like the main group atoms do. Main group atoms will normally form covalent or ionic bonds, however it is sometimes possible for them to form these compounds and be the central atom.
