1) Geometrical Isomerism

We get 2 structures overhere .

1. Cis : same ligands on same side 

2. Trans : same ligands on opposite side .

                   CL2          NH3        NH3

                        \        |       /

                               Co                                      THIS IS CIS 

                         /        |       \

                    CL2      NH3      NH3

                        NH3   CL2     NH3

                             \      |      /

                                   Co                            THIS IS TRANS .

                             /      |      \

                        NH3    CL2    NH3

HENCE , WE OBTAIN GEOMETRICAL ISOMERISM .

As we have learned

Geometrical Isomers -

This is due to the difference in relative position of the ligands attached to the central metal atom with respect to each other

-

 

 

 

[Co(NH_3)_4Cl_2]^+ is the Ma_4b_2 .. and .. Ma_2b_  type complex
