Draw all possible geometric isomers for each of the following ions or molecules.(a) Fe(NH3)4Cl2(b) Pt(NH3)2(SCN)(Br) (SCN− is bonded to Pt2+ through S)(c) Co(NH3)3(NO2)3 (NO2− is bonded to Co3+ through N)(d) [Co(en)Cl4]−

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The isomers possible in the given ions or compounds has to be drawn.

Concept introduction:

Geometry of coordination compounds: The study of geometry of the coordination compound helps in understanding the physical and chemical property of the compound.

Stereoisomer: The same molecular formula but different with the arrangements of atoms around the metal ion. The Ligands are arranged differently in coordination compounds.

Geometric isomers: stereoisomers that cannot be interconverted without breaking the chemical bonds.

Optical isomers: Optical isomers are non-superimposable mirror images.

Plane-polarized light: Light that oscillates in a single plane.

Explanation

A pair of geometric isomer can be drawn; where the four NH
