Dear Upender,

  Linkage isomerism refers to the existence of those compounds which have the same composition but

differ in the connectivity of the metal to the ligand.

                      i.e. in the 2 isomers the same metal is attatched to a ligand at different atoms.

For. eg. NO2... is a ligand with which a metal can connect or link with the Nitrogen or the Oxygen atom...hence they have same composition but different connectivity.. It is clearfrom the pic!!

Thank You!

Linkage isomerism is the existence of co-ordination compounds that have the same composition differing with the connectivity of the metal to a ligand.

Ex:- -CN and -NC ; -SCN and _NCS ;-NO2 and -ONO : -SOSO2 and OSO2S
