Transition Metal

Postby Ashita Tanwar 3H » Tue Dec 04, 2018 9:28 pm

Is it possible for a coordination compound to have multiple transition metals? Or will there always only be one? If there are more, how would we name the metals?

I am pretty sure that for the purposes of this course we will only be working with coordination complexes with one TM. Usually, these transition metals have a positive oxidation state, therefore they will only form coordinate covalent bonds with molecules and/or atoms that have negative dipoles or negative oxidation states. You probably won't see two transition metals forming coordinate covalent bonds due to the positive charges on both.

From the review session about coordination compounds I attended yesterday, I believe it was mentioned that such cases are unlikely, so don't worry about them for the final.

I think that for our purpose we can only be working with one transitional metal because we are working on the ligands attached to one TM .

In this class, we only have to worry about coordination compounds which have a mono-transition metalcore.
