Solution:
QUESTION: 2

The substitution of η5-Cp group with nitric oxide is the easiest for:

Solution:

QUESTION: 3

Among the following, the unstable carbonyl species is:

Solution:
QUESTION: 4

Oxidation number of Co in [Co(NO)(CO)3] is:

Solution:
QUESTION: 5

The organometallic compound W(C5H5)2(CO)2 follows the 18-electron rule, The hapticities of the two cyclopentadienyl groups are:

Solution:

W is 6 electron species while CO will give 2 electrons

So, 1W + 2(CO) = 10 electrons. 

Remaining 8 electrons will be coming from 2Cp. 

Hapticity means no of electrons donated by the ligand.

Here 5 + 3 = 8. So one Cp = 5 

Hapticity One Cp = 3 

Hapticity Total 1 W + 2 (CO) + 1 ( Cp-5) + 1 (Cp-3) 

= 6+4+5+3 

= 18

Therefore, correct answer is B.

QUESTION: 6

Solution:
QUESTION: 7

Which of the following will exhibit optical isomerism:

Solution:
QUESTION: 8

The compounds [PtCl2(NH3)4]Br2 and [PtBr2(NH3)4]Cl2 constitutes a pair of:

Solution:
QUESTION: 9

The order of CO bond strengths in the following metal hexacarbonyls is likely to be:

Solution:
  • In the isoelectronic series of metal carbonyl, the CO bond strength is expected to increase in the order [V(CO)-6]< [Cr(CO)6]< [Mn(CO)+6]
  • The oxidation state of the central metal atom increases in the order V(−) < Cr(0) < Mn(+) .
  • As the oxidation state of the central metal atom increases, less and less electron density is donated to the carbonyl ligand.
  • This increases the CO bond strength as the added electron density occupies the anti-bonding orbital.
QUESTION: 10

How many M — M bonds are present in [Cp Mo(CO3)]2?

Solution:

Cyclopentadienylmolybdenum tricarbonyl dimer is the chemical compound with the formula Cp2Mo2(CO)6, where Cp is C5H5.

No. of M-M bonds = (18×2-[(6+5+2×3)×2])/2=0.9 ~ 1
