Dear Farah,


The valence bond theory was fairly successful in explaining qualitatively the geometry and magnetic behaviour of the complexes. But, it could not explain the following :

(i) The origin of their absorption spectra could not be explained.

(ii) Why did different complexes of the same metal show different colours.

(iii) Relative stabilities of different complexes could not be explained.

(iv) Why should certain ligands form high spin, while others low spin complexes.

Best Of Luck...!!!!

The bond present in NaCl is ionic.Because there is a complete transfer of elctrons from on atom to another i.e Na gives its one valance electron to Cl atom to from ionic bond.
Khandavalli Satya Srikanth one year ago
it is ionic because it is made up of alkali metal(can lose e- easily) and halogen(can take a e- easily).
