Drawing Lewis Structures

The Chemistry of Art > 5. Complexes > Drawing Lewis Structures >

Use available evidence and process information from secondary sources to draw or model Lewis structures and analyse this information to indicate the bonding in selected complex ions involving the first transition series

  • Lewis dot structures are drawn to see the structure of ligands to identify lone pairs of electrons
  • This then shows where they form coordinate covalent bonds with the metal ion in the centre of the complex
