NEET Chemistry Coordination Compounds Questions Solved


In which of the following coordination entities the magnitude of 0(CFSE in octahedral field)will be maximum?

(a) [Co(H2O)6]3+

(b) [Co(NH3)6]3+

(c) [Co(CN)6]3-

(d) [Co(C2O4)3]3-

(c) As in all the given complex the central metal atom is same and contains same number of d electrons, thus CFSE is decided by ligands. In case of strong field ligand, CFSE is maximum. CN- is a strong filed ligand,Hencem in [Co(CN)6]3- CFSE is maximum.The magnitude of oct will be maxmimum in [Co(CN)6]3-
