Topic: Coordination Compounds in Metallurgical ProcessesObjectives: 1)To identify the coordination compounds that have been used in the metallurgicalprocesses. 2)To study the properties of coordination compound that leads to the metallurgicalprocesses. 3)To explore how coordination compound works in the metallurgical processes. IntroductionCoordination compounds is any of a class of substances with chemical structures in which acentral metal atom is surrounded by non-metal atoms or groups of atoms, called ligands,joined to it by chemical bonds. Coordination compounds are compound that typically consistof a complex ion and counter ion. Most of the metals in coordination compounds aretransition metal but not all. Complex ion is species where transition metal ion is surroundedby a certain number of ligands. Ligands are molecules or ions that surround the metal in acomplex ion. Ligands that act as a Lewis base are donating electrons while the transitionmetal act as a Lewis acid will accepting a pair of electrons from Lewis base. The applications of coordination compounds in chemistry and technology are manyand varied. One of the applications that used coordination compounds is in metallurgicalprocesses.Metallurgy is a domain of materials science that studies the physical andchemical behaviour of metallic elements, their intermetallic compounds and their mixturescalled alloys. Metallurgy is also the technology of metals which are the way in which scienceis applied to the production of metals and the engineering of metal components for use inconsumer products and manufactured goods. Metallurgical processes are the process ofextracting metals from their ores to produce refined alloys, in order to change their shape, toalter their structure or composition, or some combination of these. Metallurgical processescan be divided into three categories and types which are mineral processing, extractivemetallurgy and physical metallurgy.
