Neutral Molecules

Postby ngarcia » Mon Dec 02, 2019 9:08 am

I have noticed that two common neutrally charged molecules within coordination compounds are H2O and NH3. Are there any other common neutrally charged molecules that I should familiarize myself with in regards to coordination compounds?

I have found this trend too. But I have found some questions involving ethylenediamine. I wouldn't be surprised if he asked some questions involving this ligand (represented as en) or diethylenetriamine (dien) to test our knowledge of chelates.

On the chart Dr. Lavelle sent us with the names of compounds in regard to coordination complex naming, there is a section with entirely neutral compounds. These include H2O, NH3, CO, NO, ethylenediamine (en), and diethylenetriamine (dien).
