Ligands

Postby Ariana Morales » Sun Dec 02, 2018 10:43 pm

Is there a way to know or figure out the number of ligands or is it something that can only be known due to previous knowledge?

Im not positive but I think we would have to either have a picture or be told.

The number of ligands can be known from either a picture of the coordination compound and counting the amount of attachments to the central atom, or by looking at the coordination number(s) in the compound name or chemical formula.
