The manganate and permanganate ions are tetrahedral, due to:

 

  • Option 1)

    The \pi-bond involves overlap of p-orbitals of oxygen with d-orbitals of manganese.

  • Option 2)

    There is no \pi-bonding.

  • Option 3)

    The \pi-bonding involves the overlap of p-orbitals of oxygen with p-orbitals of manganese

  • Option 4)

    The \pi-bonding involves overlap of d-orbitals of oxygen with d-orbitals of manganese.

Option 1

Manganate ion:-  MnO_4^{2-} [Green, paramagnetic]

Permanganate ion:- MnO_2^{-} [purple, diamagnetic]

 

\RightarrowThese ions are tetrahedral in shape.

\RightarrowThe \pi-bonding takes place by overlap of p-orbitals of oxygen with d-orbitals of manganese.
