Name the type of isomerism when ambidentate ligands are attached to

central metal ion. Give two examples of ambidentate ligands,

Ligand having more than one different binding position are known as ambidentate ligand,

&.g., SCN has two different binding positions § and N. Coordination compound containing

ambidentate ligands are considered to show linkage isomerism due to presence of two

different binding positions.
