1. How would you sketch the probable products of the reaction of the cis and trans with each reagent other than AgNO3?
_____ with en _____ with NH3 ____ with KSCN
(NOTE: What are the differences between cis and trans and its formation?)
2. How exactly would you write the net ionic equation for the reaction of [Co(en)2Cl2]Cl with AgNO3?
It would be nice if someone could explain these to me. :)
I'm not sure what you want for #1. We can't draw structures on this forum.
For #2, the Cl outside the coordination sphere is the ionic Cl, therefore
Cl- + Ag^+ ==> AgNO3. The two coordinated Cl atoms within the sphere are not ionic and do not react with AgNO3.
For number 1, I was wondering how would you exactly link the structures together? In the form of tris and trans?
