Ligands

Postby Janet Nguy 2C » Sat Nov 30, 2019 6:31 pm

How do you know just by looking at a coordination compound that the ligand attached to the TM atom is neutral or has a charge? Or are we just supposed to memorize the list of ligands that Dr. Lavelle sent us?

You would do well to memorize the table. If you forget you can try drawing the Lewis structure to figure it out, but this is difficult for more complicated ligands

^I agree. Memorizing isn't always the best method, but I think in this case you just need to know the values as it will definitely save you some time

is this the table you are referring to? If so do we just need to memorize this table and we should be good for naming coordination compounds on the final?
