Q.10. Correct increasing order for the wavelengths of absorption in the visible region the complexes of Co3+ is :- (2017)
Q.11. Pick out the correct statement with respect to[Mn(CN)6]3–:- (2017)
A: It is sp3d2 hybridised and tetrahedral
B: It is d2sp3 hybridised and octahedral
C: It is dsp2 hybridised and square planar
D: It is sp3d2 hybridised and octahedral
Q.12. Which of the following has longest C-O bond length ? (Free C-O bond length in CO is 1.128Å) (2016)
The greater the negative charge on the carbonyl complex, the more easy it would be for the metal to permit its electrons to participate in the back bonding, the higher would be the M-C bond order and simultaneously there would be larger reduction in the C-O bond order. Thus, [Fe(CO)4]2- has the lowest C-O bond order means the longest bond length.
Q.13. Which of these statements about [Co(CN)6]3- is true ? (2015)
A: [Co(CN)6]3- has no unpaired electrons and will be in a high-spin configuration
B: [Co(CN)6]3- has no unpaired electrons and will be in a low-spin configuration
C: [Co(CN)6]3- has four unpaired electrons and will be in a low-spin configuration.
D: [Co(CN)6]3- has four unpaired electrons and will be in a high-spin configuration
[Co(CN)6]3- has no unpaired electrons and will be in a low-spin configuration.
Q.14. Cobalt(III) chloride forms several octahedral complexes with ammonia. Which of the following will not give test for chloride ions with silver nitrate at 25°C ? (2015)
a) [Co(NH3)3Cl3] → [Co(NH3)2Cl3]
b) [Co(NH3)4Cl2]Cl → [Co(NH3)4Cl2]+ +Cl-
c) [Co(NH3)5Cl]Cl2 → [Co(NH3)5Cl]+ +2Cl-
d) [Co(NH3)6Cl]Cl2 → [Co(NH3)6]+ +3Cl-
The compound (a) does not ionise So it does not give test for chloride ions.
