Explain the magnetic nature of [NiCl4]2- using valence bond theory.
Asked by Topperlearning User | 15th Apr, 2014, 10:25: AM
In [NiCl4]2-, Nickel is in +2 oxidation state and it has electronic configuration of 3d8. It is a tetrahedral complex in which one s and three p orbitals are hybradized to form 4 orbitals that are oriented tetrahedrally.
The magnetic nature of the complex, [NiCl4]2- is paramagnetic as it contains two unpaired electrons.

- The magnetic moment for two complexes of empirical formula Ni(NH3)4 (NO3)2.2H2O is zero and 2.84 BM repectively. The second complex is not a neutral complex. The correct formula and geometry of the first complex is : (1) [Ni(H2O)2(NO3)2].4NO3 = Tetrahedral (2) [Ni(NH3)4] (NO3)2.2H2O = Tetrahedral (3) [Ni(NH3)4](NO3)2.2H2O = Square planar (4) [Ni(NH3)4(H2O)2](NO3)2 = Octahedral
