Exhibit more than one oxida'on state 2. They form an extensive series of compounds known as metal complexes or coordina'on compounds. 3. Transi'on metals exhibit interes'ng magne'c proper'es. 4. Many of their compounds are colored. 5. Transi'on metals play important roles in biological systems and modern technology. Transi'on Metals 2 Periodic trends There are periodic trends in the transition metals, but they are often complex (product of several factors, some working in opposite directions e.g. combining the effects of increasing nuclear charge with the presence of nonbonding d electrons) Lanthanide contraction similarity in size, behavior, properties of 4d and 5d transition elements We won't worry about details of periodic trends in the transition metals or the exact reasons for them Transi'on Metals 3 Electron Configura'ons Ar K Ca Sc Ti V Cr Mn Fe Co Ni Cu Zn [Ar] 3d104s2 Transi'on Metals 4 3s23p6 [Ar]4s1 [Ar]4s2 [Ar]3d14s2 [Ar]3d24s2 Transition metal ATOMS Orbital filling in First Row: Sc Zn ELECTRON CONFIGURATIONS Transition Metal IONS Ti Ti2+ Ti3+ Ti4+ Ti5+ Ni4+ Ni2+ [Ar]3d24s2 Ni [Ar]3d84s2 Note: 4s is filled before 3d, but when oxidized, 4s electrons are lost before 3d. Transi'on Metals 5 Transition Metal Oxidation States Oxidation States: Highest oxidation states of Sc, Ti, V, Cr, Mn = number of valence (4s + 3d) electrons. Sc [Ar]3d14s2 Mn [Ar]3d54s2 Trend from Sc Mn: The maximum oxidation state becomes increasingly unstable. Sc3+, Ti4+ Are stable. Sc2O3 & TiO4 are stable oxides. Mn7+ Exists but is easily reduced. MnO4Strong oxidizing agent. Transi'on Metals 6 Electron Configura'ons and Oxida'on States Many transi'on metals form compounds that have fun colors! colors are due to oxida'on state and electron configura'on...more specifics about that later! Transi'on Metals 7 METAL COMPLEXES Transition metal ions are Lewis acids Ligands are Lewis bases Transi'on Metals 8 Complexes Metal complex: metal surrounded by molecules metal is bonded to molecules or ions Complex ion: metal complex that is not neutral Coordina'on compounds: compounds that contain complexes Coordina'on number: # of atoms directly bonded to a metal Transi'on Metals 9 Metal-Ligand Bonds The coordina'on of the ligand with the metal can greatly alter its physical or chemical proper'es EXAMPLE: color Transi'on Metals 10 Reduc'on Poten'al of Metal Complexes Chemical proper'es: Solubility of Transi'on Metal Complexes depends on reduc'on poten'al of the metal complex. Which is easier to reduce, the metal ion or the complex? Ag+(aq) + e- Ag(s) E1/2= +0.80V [Ag(CN)2]-(aq) + e- Ag(s)+ 2CN-(aq) E1/2 = -0.31V Transi'on Metals 11 Oxida'on State and Coordina'on Number Coordina'on Sphere: the central atom + ligands bonded to it Use [ ] to set off components in the coordina'on sphere Oxida'on State: "primary valence" Coordina'on Number: "secondary valence" 12 Transi'on Metals Transi'on Metal Complexes and Oxida'on Numbers Knowing the charge on a complex ion and the charge on each ligand, one can determine the oxida'on number for the metal. Or, knowing the oxida'on number on the metal and the charges on the ligands, one can calculate the charge on the complex ion.
