The reaction is:


Cr₃⁺ +3 C₁₀H₈N₂ → [Cr(C₁₀H₈N₂)₃]³⁺


2,2\'-bipyridine is bidentate ligand and neutral. It exhibits two N terminal, thus, it functions as bidentate ligand.


Therefore, three 2,2\'-bipyridine ligand fulfills the six coordination number of Cr₃⁺.


The formula for the complex is [Cr(C₁₀H₈N₂)₃]³⁺
