The inner sphere mechanism shown diagrammatically above involves the joining of two complexes via a bridging ligand and the loss of another ligand to accommodate this steric change. This complex can then transfer electron density via the bridging ligand from one metal centre to another. The molecules then break apart and regain the lost ligand, eventually diffusing apart.
