[Co(NH3)4Cl2]NO2 and [Co(NH3)4Cl(NO2)]Clexhibit which type of isomerism?

[Co(NH3)4Cl2]NO2 and [Co(NH3)4Cl(NO2)]Cl re examples of ionisation isomerism.

Ionisation isomerism

Compounds that gives different ions in solution, although they have the same composition are called ionisation isomerism. This form of isomerism arises when the counter ion in a complex salt is itself a potential ligand and can displace a ligand which can then become the counter ion. Ionisation isomers are indistinguishable except for a ligand that has exchanged places with an anion or neutral molecule that was initially outside the coordination complex.
