Chapter 22 Transition Metal Chemistry and Coordination Compounds Transition metals are the elements in which d and f orbitals are partially filled. The focus is on the first-row elements from scandium to copper, the most commonly used transition metals. Upon completion of this chapter, your students should be able to: 1. Explain why Zn, Cd, and Hg do not belong to the transition metals. 2. Describe several properties of transition elements. 3. Write the electron configurations for both atoms and ions for transition elements recalling the exceptions of Cr, Mo, Cu, Ag, and Au. 4. Define the following terms: coordination compound complex ion coordination number ligand donar atom monodentate bidentate polydentate chelating agent 5. List the oxidation number of the central atom in coordination compounds. 6. Name coordination compounds given their chemical formulas. 7. Write the chemical formulas of coordination compounds given their names. 8. Compare and contrast stereoisomer, geometric isomers, and optical isomers. 9. Describe the function of a polarimeter and how it measures enantiomeric solutions. 10. Cite examples of chiral isomers. 11. Distinguish between dextrorotatory and levorotatory solutions, and racemic mixtures.
