Which is not a complex compound?
Ferrous ammonium sulphate is not a complex compound. The formula for ferrous ammonium sulphate is FeSO4.(NH4)2SO4.6H2Owhich is a double salt, as it contains two simple salts.
Taking H2O as a weak field ligand, the number of unpaired electrons in [Mn(H2O)6]2+ will be ____. (Atomic No. of Mn = 25)
In the weak ligands field of water, there will be no pairing of electrons. Mn2+ has 3d5 which will have five unpaired electrons.
The complex compound used in cancer therapy is ____ .
The platinum complex [PtCl2(NH3)2] known as cis-platin is used in cancer therapy.
EDTA is ethylenediaminetetraacetate.
The mode of ionisation and total number of ions in solution formed by [PtCl4.(NH3)2] are
The no. of ions per mole of the complexes in the solution can be predicted from their modes of ionisation. In the complex, all chloride ions are non-ionisable and will not be precipitated by the addition of silver nitrate. Therefore, the coordination compound behaves as a neutral non-conducting molecule. Thus, the complex does not ionise and so the total no. of ions in solution is zero.
The coordination number of central metal ion in [Fe(C2O4)3]3- is
The oxalate ion in the complex is bidentate ligand, so one bidentate ligand should be counted as two ligands. Thus, the three bidentate ligands make the coordination number 6 for [Fe(C2O4)3]3-.
The central metal atom in carboxypeptidase - A is ____ .
The central metal atom in carboxypeptidase - A is zinc. It is a biological catalyst.
The reaction that takes place in photography is given by ____.
The developed film is fixed by washing with hypo solution. This dissolves the undecomposed AgBr to form a complex. AgBr + Na2S2O3 --------------Na3 [Ag(S2O3)2] + NaBr.
