Indicate how many stereoisomers are possible for each compound.

b) tetrahedral [NiCl2Br2]2–

c) octahedral [Fe(CO)4BrCl]

  • Chemistry -

    Check me out on this but I think b can't have any and c has two (cis and trans).

  • Chemistry -

    Yes you're correct.

    b) 1 isomer

    c) 2 isomers (cis and trans)
