Complex compounds

Complex Compounds:

What are they:

Central metal cation

Attached ligands(molecules or anions)

Coordination Number: defines the # ligands

(Useful link) http://www.chem1.com/acad/webtext/chembond/cb09.html


Complex compounds1

Complex Compounds:

Cation:

Lewis Acid (electron pair acceptor)

Generally a transition metal cation

Also common: Al, Sn, Pb

Ligand:

Lewis Base (electron pair donor)

Common ligands: NH3, H2O CN-, Cl-, OH-


Understanding net charge

Understanding net charge:

Overall charge of coordinate compound/ion is determined by the sum of the charges on the metal and the attached groups.

Ex: Al(NH3)6+3

Al (OH)6-3


Coordination geometry

Coordination Geometry

Guideline for common compounds/ions


Nomenclature complex compounds

Nomenclature- complex compounds

  • Salts: name the cation first and then the anion

  • Complex ion or molecule: name the ligand first followed by metal

  • Table of common ligands:

    Example: [Cu(NH3)4]SO4 = tetraamminecopper(II) sulfate


Colors and coordination compounds

Colors and Coordination compounds

  • Attachment of ligands causes split of the electrons in the d-orbital to a low/high energy.

  • The energy separation (Δ) of these electrons provide unique colors: F-, Cl-,Br-< C2O42-< H2O< NH3<CN-
