COORDINATION COMPLEXES

When two or more saturated solutions of neutral compounds are mixed in stoichiometric proportion and left undisturbed, a solid adduct is formed. These adducts or addition compound can be of two types:

Double salt It is formed by the combination of two salts.

  • It retains its identity only in solid state but loses it in solution.
  • On dissolution in water, it dissociates into original ions, for example,
