TM cations in solutions

Postby Sophie Krylova 2J » Thu Nov 30, 2017 9:22 am

Why will adding NH3 or KCl etc replace H20 in the TM complex?

TM cations in solution form complexes with H2O. Some ligands, however, bind more easily than others. Adding NH3 or KCN (electron rich species) will replace H20 ligands because it's an easier way to make coordination compounds.
