Inorganic Chemistry

1. For the following questions you may need to look-up character tables online.

An object has a four-fold principle rotation axis. For the irreducible representationcontaining (x,y) in its linear functions column, use matrices to determine thecharacters in the columns headed by E, C4 and the next listed rotation operation.Also show how matrices can be used to determine the number in front of each ofthe operations i.e. the number of unique operations. Fully explain your reasoning.

For the Dsh character table explain the logic used to assign Mulliken symbols to the irreducible representations. You should ignore the subscripts 1 and 2 for the representations but explain all other parts of each Mulliken symbol.

Explain the relationship between the symmetry element i, the characters in the column headed by i in character tables and the subscripts g or u that are used in crystal field and molecular orbital energy level diagrams.

### Question 43679

Inorganic Chemistry

The observed rate constant kobs for ligand substitution reactions at square planar platinum(II) complexes is a combination of the rate constants from competing pathways with (kı) and without (k2) solvent participation. The rate constant (k2) for the substitution of a chloride in trans-[Pt(py)2C12] by different ligands (Y) in methanol solvent at 30 °C and the nucleophilicity parameter (npi) of these ligands is given below:(c)

when Y = MeOH=solvent; the rate of reaction is 0.00027 s-'.

Use this data to calculate the nucleophilic discrimination factor (s) for the complex [Pt(py)2C12]. Show all of your working. (py = pyridine)

In methanol solvent at 30 °C the nucleophilic discrimination factor (s) for[Pt(dien)(OH2)]* = 0.44. Using your value of s from part (i) would you expect [Pt(dien)(OH2)]2* to be generally more or less reactive towards ligand substitution? Explain your answer.dien=diethylenetriamine H2N(CH2)2NH(CH2)2NH2)

Inorganic Chemistry

Consider the Frost diagram of some actinoids (An) in aqueous solution shown below:

Answer the following questions and fully explain your reasoning in each case.

Why does Bk show only 2 oxidation states while Am, Pu, U show 4 different oxidation states?

Why is the oxidation state +4 particularly stable for the element Th?[6]

The oxocations AnO2* and AnO2²* (An = U, Pu, Am) have been isolated and studied. However, the oxocations LnO2+ and LnO2²+(Ln = Nd, Sm, Eu) areunknown. How can these observations be explained?

Would you expect the following molecules to be observed? Explain your answer.

CIF7

ArF4
