Werner s Theory 0 Alfred Werner suggested in 1893 that metal ions exhibit primary and secondary valences gt Primary valences are the oxidation numberforthe metal 3 on the cobalt at e the right gt Secondary valences are the coordination number the number of atoms directly bonded to the metal 6 in the complex at the right The central metal and the ligands directly bonded to it make up the coordination sphere of the complex Ilc go 0 Werner s Theory Werner proposed putting all molecules and ions within the sphere in brackets and those free anions that dissociate from the complex ion when

Why people love StudySoup

Jim McGreen Ohio University

"Knowing I can count on the Elite Notetaker in my class allows me to focus on what the professor is saying instead of just scribbling notes the whole time and falling behind."

Jennifer McGill UCSF Med School

"Selling my MCAT study guides and notes has been a great source of side revenue while I'm in school. Some months I'm making over $500! Plus, it makes me happy knowing that I'm helping future med students with their MCAT."

Steve Martinelli UC Los Angeles

"There's no way I would have passed my Organic Chemistry class this semester without the notes and study guides I got from StudySoup."


"Their 'Elite Notetakers' are making over $1,200/month in sales by creating high quality content that helps their classmates in a time of need."
