What is Ligand Isomerism? - QS Study
top logo

Ligand isomerism arises from the presence of ligands which can adopt different isomeric forms. An example is provided by diaminopropane, which may have the amine groups in the terminal (1,3-) positions or in the 1,2-positions.

Another example of such isomerism is shown by the ions, bis(1,3-diaminopropane)platinum(2+) and bis(1,2-diaminopropane)platinum(2+),
