A coordination compound CrCl3.4H2O precipitates silver


A coordination compound CrCl3.4H2O precipitates silver chloride when treated with silver nitrate. The molar conductance of its solution corresponds to a total of

two ions. Write the structural formula of the compound and name it.


If it forms silver chloride then there is one free chlorine atom outside the coordination sphere. The structural formula has to be [Cr(H2O)4Cl2]Cl. The name of this complex is tetraaquadichlorido chromium(III) chloride.
