The Preparation of Nickel(II) Complexes: Linkage Isomers

The Preparation of Nickel(II) Complexes: Linkage Isomers By: Trinidad Reyes Introduction The purpose of the nickel (II) complex: linkage isomers experiment was to investigate how the ambidentate properties of the NO2 ligand behave when it is bonded to a nickel atom with respect to its place in the spectrochemical series. The NO2 ligand can be classified as an ambidentate ligand because this ligand contains more than one potential donor atom. Nitrogen and oxygen are considered donor atoms because due elements […]

Synthesis and Analysis of a Nickel Complex

Give an experimental section for this laboratory experiment.   BOTH WEEKS Week 1: Synthesis of a Nickel complex was determined by adding ethylenediamine and ethanol. After obtaining close to 1.000g of nickel(II) sulfate hexahydrate, with your partner as instructed in step one, we quantitatively transferred it to a 250mL beaker with no more than 3mL of water. After the substance had dissolved we added the assigned amount of en to the substance slowly so it could attach to the nickel around […]
