Acetylacetone, abbreviated acacH, is a bidentate ligand. It loses a proton and coordinates as acac-, as shown below, where M is a transition metal:
Which of the following complexes are optically active: cis-Cr(acac)2(H2O)2, Trans-Cri(acac)2(H2O)2, and Cr(acac)3?
Answer to relevant QuestionsDraw’ all geometrical isomers of Pt(CN)2Br2(H2O)2. Which of these isomers have an optical isomer? Draw' the various optical isomers. Compounds of Sc3+ are not colored, but those of Ti3+ and V3+ are. Why? Rank the following complex ions in order of increasing wavelength of light absorbed. The wavelength of absorbed electromagnetic radiation for CoBr42- is 3.4 X 10-6 m. Will the complex ion CoBr64- absorb electromagnetic radiation having a wavelength longer or shorter than 3.4 X 10“6 m? Explain. Henry Taube, the 1983 Nobel Prize winner in chemistry, has studied the mechanisms of oxidation-reduction reac¬tions involving transition metal complexes. In one experi¬ment he and his students studied the following ...
