Ligand bind to metal

Postby Jimmy lira-1G » Sat Jun 09, 2018 11:50 am

Can a ligand bind to a metal if it has a double bond? In section we discussed how it is harder for double bonds to stretch and rotate to bind to a specific metal, does that mean all double bonds don't bind to metals?

I don't think they break because to rotate you have to break the pi bond and that takes too much energy.

Pi bonds cant rotate so there will be no double bound ligands.
