This article describes some of the experimental evidence that suggests a useful analogy can be made between the transition metal cluster carbonyls and the corresponding carbon monoxide-metal chemisorption systems. This analogy is interpreted using recent electronic structure results in metal physics, leading to a theoretical framework in which cluster chemistry can be approached.
