(d) K[CuCl2]

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The given coordination compound has to be named.

Concept introduction:

Coordination compounds: The compounds having coordination covalent bonds which form when metal ions react with polar molecules or anions.

Coordination number: The total number of ligands that forms bond with the metal atom.

Formulas and names of coordination compounds,

  • The cation is written before the anion.
  • The charge of the cation(s) is is balanced by the charge of the anion(s).
  • In the complex ion, neutral ligands are written before anionic ligands and the formula for the whole is placed in a bracket.
