Electronic spectroscopy is a powerful method for investigating transition metal complexes. Additional and complementary information can be provided by magnetic measurement because complexes generally have partially filled metal d or f orbitals so a large range of magnetic properties can be expected depending on oxidation state, e– configuration & co-ordination number of central atom. DIAMAGNETISM … Continue reading “MAGNETISM an essential topic in COORDINATION CHEMISTRY”

The branch of Inorganic Chemistry that deals with the study of coordination compounds is called coordination chemistry. A compound in which a metal cation or atom is attached to a group of ligands by coordinate bond is called co-ordination complex. Ligand: Any species (ion or molecule) that have atleast one lone pair of electrons and … Continue reading “Introduction of Coordination chemistry, an essential Branch of Inorganic Chemistry”

Rate of Reaction in CHEMICAL KINETICS

Dependence of Reaction Rates on concentration (Rate law expression) When a chemical reaction proceeds, concentration of reactant decreases while that of products increases. → It is indicated from the fig, In the biginning, only reactants are present so that the concentration of product is Zero →As the reaction proceeds, the concentration of the reactants decreases … Continue reading “Dependence of Rate of Reaction in CHEMICAL KINETICS, an innovative topic of Physical Chemistry”

The feasibility of a given reaction can be predicted with the help of thermodynamic principles. Besides this, the relative amounts of reactants and products at equilibrium position of the reaction can also be predicted. In addition, we can predict whether changes in the experimental conditions will increase or decrease the amount of a product at … Continue reading “CHEMICAL KINETICS – An Essential Branch of Chemistry”
