(a) Interpretation: The name of the complex [ Co ( en ) 2 ( SCN ) Cl + ] needs to be determined. Concept introduction: Coordination compounds are those in which a transition metal atom is bonded to a ligand which can be neutral cation or anion. The transition metal element is enclosed within a bracket and a charge is present on the ion to balance the charge present on the ligands. The total charge present on any complex ion is equal to the sum of the oxidation number of the central metal atom and the total charge on the ligand present in it.

Chapter 19, Problem 21QAP
Interpretation Introduction

(a)

Interpretation:

The name of the complex [Co(en)2(SCN)Cl+] needs to be determined.

Concept introduction:

Coordination compounds are those in which a transition metal atom is bonded to a ligand which can be neutral cation or anion. The transition metal element is enclosed within a bracket and a charge is present on the ion to balance the charge present on the ligands. The total charge present on any complex ion is equal to the sum of the oxidation number of the central metal atom and the total charge on the ligand present in it.

Interpretation Introduction

(b)

Interpretation:

The name of the complex [Ni(CN)42] needs to be determined.

Concept introduction:

Coordination compounds are those in which a transition metal atom is bonded to a ligand which can be neutral cation or anion. The transition metal element is enclosed within a bracket and a charge is present on the ion to balance the charge present on the ligands. The total charge present on any complex ion is equal to the sum of the oxidation number of the central metal atom and the total charge on the ligand present in it.

Interpretation Introduction

(c)

Interpretation:

The name of the complex [Zn(C2O4)23] needs to be determined.

Concept introduction:

Coordination compounds are those in which a transition metal atom is bonded to a ligand which can be neutral cation or anion. The transition metal element is enclosed within a bracket and a charge is present on the ion to balance the charge present on the ligands. The total charge present on any complex ion is equal to the sum of the oxidation number of the central metal atom and the total charge on the ligand present in it.

Interpretation Introduction

(d)

Interpretation:

The name of the complex [Ag(NH3)Cl] needs to be determined.

Concept introduction:

Coordination compounds are those in which a transition metal atom is bonded toa ligand which can be neutral, cation or anion. The transition metal element is enclosed within a bracket and a charge is present on the ion to balance the charge present on the ligands. The total charge present on any complex ion is equal to the sum of the oxidation number of the central metal atom and the total charges of the ligand present in it.
