Question

The EAN of metal atoms in Fe(NO)2(CO)2 and Co2(CO)8 respectively are

Solution

Correct option is

36, 36

 

[Fe(NO)2(CO)2] : 26 electrons of Fe + 6 electrons from 2NO molecules and 4 electrons from 2CO molecules = 36 

Co2(CO)8 : 27 electrons of Co + 1 electron shared from another Co atom + 8 electrons from 4 CO molecules = 36.
