Illustrate with example, the difference between a double salt and a co-ordination compound
|Double salt||Complex compound|
|They contain two simple salt in equimolar proportion.||They contain a complex of salt which may or may not be in equimolar proportion.|
|In aqueous solution, they dissociate completely into ions.||In aqueous solution complex ion does not dissociation into ions.|
|They are ionic compound and contain ionic bonds.||They may or may not be ionic complex part always contains coordinate bonds.|
|Properties of the salt is same as its constituent compounds.||The properties of the compound are different from its constituents due to complex formation.|
Example : Potash alum
|Example : Potassium hexachloroplatinate (IV)
