determining the coordination compound

Postby duenezjuleny1D » Sat Dec 08, 2018 8:09 pm

when determining the coordination compound do we only count the number of bonds on to the central metal? or do we count the outer bonds as well?

If you are talking about the coordination number, the coordination number is the number of ligands bound to the central atom!
