a. Draw both the fac and mer isomers of Cr(CO)3(NH3)3 and assign them to the correct point group.
b. What are the symmetries of the CO stretching vibrations in the fac and mer isomers.
c. Would you be able to use an IR spectrum of the CO stretching vibrations to determine whether you have synthesized the fac or mer isomer of the complex?
