Q. 37C

Postby Katie Lam 1B » Mon Nov 20, 2017 11:41 am

With the help of Table 17.4, determine the coordination
number of the metal ion in each of the following complexes:
[PtCl2(en)2]2+

How do we know that en (ethylenediamine) is bidentate?

We know that ethylenediamine is bidentate because it has 2 atoms that would coordinate to Pt in this case. ethylenediamine, C2H4(NH2)2, uses both its NH2 atoms to bond with the metal atom
