Concept

Problem: Arrange the complexes in order of decreasing stability.Rank from most stable to least stable. To rank items as equivalent, overlap them.[FeF6]2+ , [Co(en)3]2+ , [Ni(en)(H2O)4]2+ , [Fe(NH3)6]2+

FREE Expert Solution

In this problem, we are asked to rank the given complexes in order of decreasing stability.

  • Chelating ligands stabilize the complex more than non-chelated ligands.
    • The greater the number of chelated ligands, the more stable it is.
