Coordination compounds

Postby 405404782 Gabriel Rigole 4F » Sun Nov 24, 2019 4:12 pm

Do Coordination Compounds only take into account the size of the atoms specifically the metals and ions?

Can you clarify what aspect of coordination compounds you are referring to? If you are asking about determining shape, you should be looking at the number of bonds that the central cation has formed/ number of ligands attached

A coordination compound is an electrically neutral compound, in which at least 1 of the ions is a complex of a central metal with other molecules attached.
