Coordination number

Postby Golbarg Rahimi 3k » Sat Dec 09, 2017 8:11 am

Is the coordination number the number of bonds only in the coordination sphere? If the coordination compound is a cation or anion and is attached to an anion or cation, does that bond count in the coordination number if it is not in the sphere?

The coordination number is only the number of bonds in the coordination sphere.

Take a look at your lecture notes where I discussed this.
