Well I think in this example, the central metal of Co is already full with 6 ligands already, forming an octehdral shape. So it seems like there wouldn't be any room for the second Cl to fit inside the coordination sphere
Hi! In this example, the second Cl is not directly bonded to the TM cation but instead bonded to the coordination compound that is formed. This would cause it to be outside the sphere of influence for the cation, and so its name wouldn't be changed in regards to being in the sphere of influence.
