Name the type of isomerism when ambidentate ligands
Question:

Name the type of isomerism when ambidentate ligands are attached to a central metal ion. Give two examples of ambidentate ligands.

Solution:

Ambidendate ligands are those having different two binding sites.

Examples: Isothiocyanato Thiocyanato and Nitrite-N Nitrito-O

The type of isomerism when ambidentate ligands are attached to a central metal ion is called linkage isomerism because they only differ in the atom that is linked to the central metal ion.
