Coordination Polyhedron Preparation and Properties

Coordination Polyherdon :

The spatial arrangement of the ligand atoms which are directly attached to the central atom/ion is called co-ordination polyhedron around the central atomlion. Different kinds of structures of coordination polyhedron are as follow:
