Textbook Problem

The carbonate ion (CO32−) can act as either a monodentate or a bidentate ligand. Draw a picture of CO32− coordinating to a metal ion as a monodentate and as a bidentate ligand. The carbonate ion can also act as a bridge between two metal ions. Draw a picture of a CO32− ion bridging between two metal ions.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The structure of carbonate ion (CO32) coordinating to a metal ion as a monodentate and as a bidentate ligand is to be stated. Structure of carbonate ion bridging between two metal ions is to be stated.

Concept introduction: Monodentate ligands are those ligands that can donate one pair of electrons to the central atom, whereas bidentate ligands are those ligands that can donate two pair of electrons to the central atom.

To draw: The structure of carbonate ion (CO32) coordinating to a metal ion as a monodentate and as a bidentate ligand.

Explanation

The structure of carbonate ion (CO32) coordinating to a metal ion as a monodentate is as follows.

Monodentate ligands are those ligands that can form one bond to a metal ion. A carbonate ion (CO32) can act both as monodentate and bidentate ligand. The structure of carbonate ion (CO32) coordinating to a metal ion as a monodentate is,

Figure 1

The structure of carbonate ion (CO32) coordinating to a metal ion as a bidentate is as follows.

Bidentate ligands are those ligands that can form two bonds to a metal ion. A carbonate ion (CO32) can act both as monodentate and bidentate ligand
