Coordination Compounds

Postby Jada Brown 2H » Sun Nov 24, 2019 11:17 am

What makes something a coordination compound compared to a regular molecular or ionic compound? Why are they important/what can they do?

A coordination compound occurs in a compound that has a coordinate covalent bond. This means that one atom has supplied both electrons in the bond.

Coordination compounds have a central atom/ion bonded by coordinate covalent bonds to other molecules/ions.

A coordination compound is a class of compounds in which a central metal atom is surrounded by a group of ions or molecules called ligands.
