Textbook Problem

Draw all geometrical and linkage isomers of Co(NH3)4(NO2)2.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: All the geometrical and linkage isomers of Co(NH3)4(NO2)2 are to be drawn.

Concept introduction: The structures that have the same composition of complex ions, but differ in the attachment of metal to the ligands are known as linkage isomers.

In geometrical isomerism, atoms or group of atoms are arranged at different positions around a bond.

To draw: All the geometrical and linkage isomers of Co(NH3)4(NO2)2 .

Explanation

Explanation

There are two types of geometrical isomerism,

  • cis-isomerism: In this isomerism, ligands are arranged next to each other.
  • trans-isomerism: In this isomerism, ligands are arranged across from each other.

In the cis- isomer of complex ion Co(NH3)4(NO2)2 , four NH3 and two NO2 ligands are arranged next to each other. The structure is,

Figure 1

In the trans- isomer of complex ion Co(NH3)4(NO2)2 , four NH3 and two NO2 ligands are arranged across from each other. The structure is,

Figure 2

Coordination of metal ion Cobalt  with Co(NH3)4(NO2)2 is possible in three ways,

  • Coordination of metal ion with Oxygen atom of the ONO and another Oxygen atom of the ONO
