Textbook Problem

Four geometric isomers are possible for [Co(en)(NH3)2(H2O)Cl]+. Draw the structures of all four. (Two of the isomers are chiral, meaning that each has a non-superimposable mirror image.)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The isomers possible in [Co(en)(NH3)2(H2O)Cl]+ 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.


Each ethylenediamine ligand forms two coordination bonds with metal ions to form a complex.


A pair of geometric isomer can be drawn; where the ethylenediamine , H
