Match the terms with the correct definitions.
2. coordination compound
3. Lewis base
4. complex ion
5. bidentate ligand
6. octahedral complex
a) a ligand that can form two bonds (donate two electron pairs) to a metal ion.
b) a neutral compound (often containing a transition metal) consisting of a complex ion and counter ions.
c) a neutral molecule or charged ion that acts like a Lewis base by donating a lone pair of electrons that can be used to form a bond to a metal ion.
d) a metal ion surrounded by six ligands in an octahedral geometry.
e) electron pair donor.
f) a charged species consisting of a metal ion surrounded by ligands.
