Textbook Problem

Draw structures for the five possible geometric isomers of Cu(H2NCH2CO2)2(H2O)2. Are any of these species chiral? (See the structure of the ligand in Study Question 78.)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The possible five geometric isomers has to be drawn.

Concept introduction:

Isomerism: Isomers are compounds with same molecular formula with different arrangements of atoms.

  • Structural isomers:  have same molecular formula but different bonding arrangements of atoms. It is classified into coordination isomer (occurs by exchanging a coordinated ligand and the counter-ions) and linkage isomers (ligand attached through different atoms to the metal).
  • Stereoisomers: differ in their spatial arrangement of atoms.
Explanation

In the given complex Cu(H2NCH2
