Stereochemistry of Metallic Compounds

Stereochemistry, bonding and reactivity deals mostly with transition metals, dealing with the geometric factors that affect multiple metal-metal bond strength, or delocalized bonding in M2X2 diamonds, M3X2 and M2X3cages.  .  The relationship between stereochemistry and spin state has led us to formulate simple rules to predict the geometries of four and six-coordinated transition metals. The reason that isomers are so important in drug design is that normally, only one particular isomer is effective in treating the condition. The branch of chemistry that is concerned with the spatial arrangements of atoms in molecules and with chemical and physical effects of these arrangements. Geometric Isomers are found in square planar and octahedral complexes. There are two geometric isomers possible for this composition when the coordination geometry is octahedral: cis and trans. The fac- isomer (short for "facial") gets its name because all three chlorides are coordinated on one face of the octahedron. The merisomer (short for "meridional“) has the three chloride ions coordinated in a plane that includes the metal ion.
