SCN- vs NCS- Lewis Structure

Postby Abigail Sanders 1E » Sat Dec 07, 2019 12:21 pm

Would thiocyanto and isothiocyanto have different lewis structures depending on which atom is bonded to the central transition atom?

The lewis structure would be different in the case that for SCN- the S would bind to the central atom while for NCS- the N will bind to the central atom.
