Drawing Mononuclear Octahedral Coordination Compounds Containing Tridentate Chelating Ligands
Mohamadou, Aminou; Ple, Karen; Haudrechy, Arnaud
Journal of Chemical Education, v88 n3 p302-305 Mar 2011
Complexes with tridentate ligands of the type [M(A-B-C)2], where A [not equal to] B [not equal to] C and with an imposed bonding sequence A-B-C, require special attention to draw all possible stereoisomers. Depending on the nature of the central donor atom B of the tridentate ligand, an easy drawing method is presented that shows seven chiral enantiomer pairs and one achiral stereoisomer are obtained. (Contains 1 table and 13 tables.)
