sir, justify the "ammonia is the good ligand" and give reasons
Asked by PRIYANGA JAGANATHAN | 4th Mar, 2011, 03:37: AM
Due to presence of a lone pair of electrons ammonia behaves as a ligand. The neutral molecule NH3, it easily donates the lone pair to the metal.
The nitrogen atom is sp3 hybridised, so it has more p-character, which is dumble form. So, nitrogen tends to donate the electron pair.
We hope that clarifies your query.
