Re: Cisplatin

cisplatin works in chemotherapy as it has two Cl- atoms on one side and 2 NH3 molecules on the other side. This causes the bent shape and for cisplatin to be bidentate while transplatin would have one Cl and one NH3 on each side causing it be monodentate. The transplatin would have a harder time sta...

no the resonance structures do not need to have the same formal charge for all the atoms. The only thing that must stay the same is the overall charge. the difference in formal charge is what causes one molecule structure to be more stable or favorable than others.

this is because with the addition of more electrons between the pairs, the pull of the two atoms together is stronger and thus shortens the length of the bond.
