Differences between Double salt and Complex Compound Preparation and Properties
Differences between double Salt and a Complex Compound (Coordination Compound) :
|Double Salt||Complex Compound|
|Double salt exists only in solid state and dissociate into ions in aqueous solution or in any other solvent.||Co-ordination compounds exist in the solid state as well as when dissolved in water or any other solvent.|
|In solution, they lose their identity.||They do not completely lose their identity in solution.|
|The properties of the double salt are essentially the same as those of constituent compounds.||The properties of coordination compound are different from the constituents.|
|In a double salt, metal ions exhibit their normal valiancy.
|In co-ordination compound, metal ion is surrounded by a number of positively charged ions or neutral molecules more than its normal valency.|
