Test: Previous Year Questions: Coordination Compounds - Question 12

The value of the 'spin only' magnetic moment for one of the following configurations is 2.84 BM . The correct one is –

[AIEEE-2005]

Detailed Solution for Test: Previous Year Questions: Coordination Compounds - Question 12

Spin only magnetic moment = √(n(n+2)) B.M.

Where n = number of unpaired electron

Given, √(n(n+2)) = 2.84

n(n + 2) = 8.0656

n = 2

In an octahedral complex, for a d4 configuration in a strong field ligand, number of unpaired electrons = 2

Hence A is correct.

Test: Previous Year Questions: Coordination Compounds - Question 15

In Fe(CO)5, the Fe–C bond possesses –  

[AIEEE-2006]

Detailed Solution for Test: Previous Year Questions: Coordination Compounds - Question 15

The correct answer is option D
(Both s and p character)
It's called “synergic bonding”. The ligand (CO) donates it's lone pair of electrons to the vacant orbitals of the iron atom and forms the sigma-bond. Since the iron atom also possesses some electrons in its d-orbitals, it back donates those electrons to the molecular orbitals of the ligand forming a π-bond. In this way, the metal-carbon bond length is reduced and the complex gets more stability. One important thing to keep in mind is that the metal atom donates its electron pairs to the antibonding MO of CO, so the C-O bond is weakened by this synergic bonding, leading to a larger C-O bond length in the complex (as opposed to a free CO molecule).
Metal-C bond length reduces, C-O bond length increases, complex gets stability.

Test: Previous Year Questions: Coordination Compounds - Question 18

Which one of the following has a square planar geometry - (Co = 27, Ni = 28, Fe = 28, Fe = 26, Pt = 78) –  

[AIEEE-2007]

Detailed Solution for Test: Previous Year Questions: Coordination Compounds - Question 18

The correct answer is Option D.
Cl- is weak field ligand and so chloride complexes are mostly high spin, but CFSE for transition metals is in the order 3d<4d<5d , so the metal belonging to higher series will prefer low spin complex. Among the given complexes, Pt forms a low spin complex while others form a high spin complex. Square planar geometry of [PtCl4]2− is also supported by its diamagnetic nature.
Note: All the complexes of Pd (II) and Pt (II) are square planar.
 

Test: Previous Year Questions: Coordination Compounds - Question 19

The coordination number and the oxidation state of the element 'E' in the complex [E(en)2(C2O4)] NO2 (where (en) is ethylene diamine) are, respectively –

 [AIEEE-2008]

Detailed Solution for Test: Previous Year Questions: Coordination Compounds - Question 19

The correct answer is option D
The coordination number is the number of coordinate covalent bonds formed with a central metal atom. ligand en is a bidentate ligand that has two donor atoms in one molecule. So, when two en ligands attach to the central atom they will make four covalent coordinate bonds. Also, Oxalate (C2​O4​) is bidentate ligand making two coordinate covalent bonds at a time. Hence overall the coordination number of the element E is 4+2=6.
 The oxidation number can be calculated by adding the charges of all the ligands and counter ions (ions present outside the central atom).
Let the oxidation state of element E be x.
Ligand en is neutral. Oxalate carries−2charge NO2​ (counter ion) carries −1charge.
 
So,  x + (2 × 0) + (−2) + (−1) = 0
x − 2 − 1 = 0
x = +3
 

Test: Previous Year Questions: Coordination Compounds - Question 20

In which of the following octahedral complexes of Co (at. no. 27), will the magnitude of Dbe the highest ?

Detailed Solution for Test: Previous Year Questions: Coordination Compounds - Question 20

The correct answer is Option A.
∆о is the magnitude of splitting of d-orbitals in the octahedral field. Strong field ligands cause large splitting of d-orbitals into t2g and eg orbitals where t2g has lower energy than d-orbitals and eg has higher energy than d-orbitals.
Spectrochemical series is the series in which ligands are arranged in the order of their increasing splitting ability. The CN- ligands are at the right most end indicating the high splitting power.
