    in ni(nh3)6 2+ nickel is in +2 o.s so configuration is 3d8 here in presence of nh3 ligand 3d electrons is not pair up and hybridization is sp3d2 and outer orbital complex is formed...

    why in case of 'Co' 3d electrons gets paired up but not in case of 'Ni'? Please explain
  • Lingareddy thankyou

    in co(nh3)6 3+ cobalt is in +3 o.s so configuration is 3d6...so in presence of Nh3 ligand the electron is forced to pair up thus leaving 2 empty inner d orbital so d2sp3 hybridisat...
