Formula

CO(NH3)Cl3(C38H76N2O2)2

Coordination number

8

Possible geometric isomers

designated facial and meridional

Hybridization

 H=12

(V+M−I)

H=12(V+M−I) where V

V is number of valence electron, M

M is number of single bonds and I

I is charge on the atom. Here if H=2

H=2 then it is sp

sp , H=3

H=3 then sp

2

sp2 and so on.

For CO(NH3)Cl3

[(CO(NH3)X4], here V=10

V=10, M=4

M=4 and I=0

I=0, so H=7

H=7 hence sp3d3

sp3d3.

Magnetic behavior

Upon pairing it has one unpaired electron that makes it paramagnetic complex.
