What is coordination isomerism? Give example.
Asked by Topperlearning User | 22nd Jun, 2016, 01:37: PM
This type of isomerism arises from the interchange of ligands between cationic and anionic entities of different metal ions present in a complex.
When both positive and the negative ions of a salt are complex ions and the two isomers differs in the distribution of ligands in the cation and the anion; it is Coordination isomerism.
Example: [Co(NH3)6][Cr(CN)6] and [Cr(NH3)6][Co(CN)6].

- 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
