F325 ligands help!Watch
The last question (about nickel) and the question about reactions of iron were really challenging!
I have no problem in understanding the ligand substitution reactions that are required in the spec, however applying that knowledge to unfamiliar situations is something that I find very difficult for this topic.
Can anyone suggest how they prepared/are preparing for this area of the exam? I really want to gain a better understanding on this subject but my usual methods of revision (looking at chemguide, past papers, reading the text book etc) are not preparing me for the questions!
The last questions on F325 are typically horrible, stretch and challenge questions. Don't panic, you'll be in the same boat as everyone. Just try to work through whatever they throw at you on the day.
