Identify the correct statements for the behavior of ethane-1, 2- diamine as a ligand.
(a) It is a neutral ligand
(b) It is a didentate ligand
(c) It is a chelating ligand
(d) It is a unidentate ligand
Choose the correct option
1. (a, b)
2. (b, c)
3. (c, d)
4. (a, c)
Hence, (a) and (c) are correct choices.
The molecular formula of ethane-1, 2-diamine is
(a) Ethane-1, 2-diamine is a neutral ligand due to the absence of any charge.
(b) It's a didentate ligand due to the presence of two donor sites one at each nitrogen atom of
the amino group.
(0) Itis'a chelating, ligand due to its ability to chelate with the metal
Hence, options (a), (b) and (c) are correct choices.
