Coordination Compound

Postby Tatiana R Dis 3E » Tue Nov 21, 2017 9:53 pm

What is a coordination compound and do they relate in anyway to hybridization or are they completely different?

a coordination compound is a neutrally charged compound where one of its ions is a coordination complex, which in turn consists of a central transition metal and a set of attached ligands (bonded by coordinate covalent bonds). these do not relate to hybridization, but we would sometimes need to know the shape of the resulting coordination complex (such as tetrahedral, octahedral, square planar).

A coordination compound is a neutrally charged compound and it usually consists of a transition metal connected by sets of ligands. You can determine the coordination number because of how many bonds there are on the compound. These do not relate to hybridization.
