how the bond works

Postby MKearney_4G » Sat Dec 07, 2019 12:56 pm

when you have a metal cation, like Platinum for example [Xe] 4f14 5d9 6s1

and you have the 2 Chlorines and 2 Ammines like in Cisplatin ( Cl [Ne] 3s² 3p⁵ and N [He] 2s2 2p3 ),
which atom donates it's lone pair to the Coord. Covalent bond?

How can you predict the number of bonding sites for a given cation?

“How can you predict the number of bonding sites for a given cation?”

I think the lone pairs of a cation will allow for the bonding site of an anion.
