Unformatted text preview: order of decreasing crystal field splitting ability: Cys-Glu CO His H 2 O Met CN-Tyr NH 3 NO 5) Arrange the following six ligands in order of increasing ability to form stable complexes and account for your order. Optional Problems: 1. Given the generic metal complex, predict which metal would be most likely to bind, and provide a brief rationale for your selection. S S S S M n M O O N O O N O O O O n Cu 2+ , Au +1 , Pd Ca 2+ , Cu 1+ , Fe 3+ 2. Ammonia is an important component of fertilizer, made by the Haber-Bosch process (N 2 + 6e-+ 6H + b 2NH 3 ). Nitrogenases carry out this process in nature. A nitrogenase is a metalloenzyme made up of an iron (Fe) protein and a molybdenum-iron (Mo-Fe) protein that uses ATP to convert N 2 into NH 3 . Draw the valence bond diagram and the molecular orbital diagram for NH 3 ....
