Transition Metals

Postby Michelle Shin 4B » Sun Nov 24, 2019 9:13 pm

Do all transition metals form coordination compounds or just the ones mentioned in lecture?

I'm pretty sure all transition metals can form coordination compounds.

Because the transition metals are all good Lewis acids, they can all form coordination compounds, but I'm pretty sure he said we only need to concern ourselves with the first row.

everything talked about in lecture should apply to all of the transition metals because they have very similar properties and would therefore form similar bonds.

Yes. A striking property of d-block elements is that they are able to form coordination compounds.

Yes, the transition metals in the d-block all can form coordination compounds.
