why cyanide ions are not considered as ambidentated ligand though it can act as an isocyadide ion?
Asked by vasturushi | 7th Nov, 2017, 07:33: PM
Ambidentated ligand: Ligands those have two different donor atoms
For example NO2, SCN, CN
[Cu(CN)4 ]3- In this coordination compound, CN is the ligand, CN can be attached to central metal atom i.e. Cu through C (Cu → CN) and through N (Cu→ NC)
This is possible because here, in this case, the transfer of charge is possible, the -ve charge can move between C and N.

- Explain classification of ligands on the basis of charge and dentisity. Explain the ambidentate ligands following terms with example. Bidentate ligand Tridentate ligands Tetradentate ligands Pentadentate ligands Hexadentate ligands
- It means first we need to check what type of ligand it is then only we can state that what's its coordination number can be
