1. Explain why bothcisandtransisomers are possible for [Co(NH3)2(C2O4)2]-but only

thecisisomer is possible for [Co(NH3)4(C2O4)]+.

2. Is more than one geometric isomer possible for the complex [Co(NH3)5Cl]2+ion? Why

or why not? If your answer is yes, provide a sketch of both isomers.

3. How many total isomers are possible for the compound [Co(C2O4)2(NH3)Cl]2-? Make

sketches of these isomers. Indicate optical isomers and draw them as mirror images.

1. Explain why both cis and trans isomers are possible for [Co(NH 3 ) 2 (C 2 O 4 ) 2 ] - but only the cis
isomer is possible for [Co(NH 3 ) 4 (C 2 O 4 )] + .
Solution
You can understand them from their structures The first compound, the two NH3 can be in adjacent
positions to give cis and opposite positions to give trans. But in the second compound no such...
