Some questions of this chapter are given here.

Q. Explain the bonding in coordination compounds in terms of Werner’s postulates.


Werner’s postulates: -

a) A metal exhibits two types of valencies- primary and secondary. Primary valencies are satisfied by negative ions while secondary valencies are satisfied by both negative and neutral ions. Primary valency can be calculated by oxidation number of the metal ion, whereas the secondary valency refers to the coordination number of the metal ion.
b) Primary valencies are usually ionizable, while secondary valencies are nonionizable.
c) A metal ion has a definite number of secondary valencies around the central atom. This valency assigned the definite geometry of the coordination compound.

Q. Explain with two examples each of the following: coordination entity, ligand,coordination number, coordination polyhedron, homoleptic and heteroleptic.
