In natural enzymes, the substrate selectivity observed is usually associated with the specific molecular geometry surrounding the active site, Selectivity of reaction is often determined by the so-called "lock and key" mechanism, in which only molecules with a specific shape can "bind" to the active centre.

of Paris-Sud) keeps the fact that organometallic chemistry is by definition interdisciplinary, especially in terms of its relationship to theoretical chemistry as he starts with the most elementary ideas of molecular orbital theory and leads the reader toward an understanding of the electronic structure, the molecular geometry, and, in some cases, the reactivity of transition metal complexes.
