Give an example of a compound which can form linkage isomer.


[Cr(H2O)5SCN]3+ can form a linkage isomer, as here more than one atom of a monodentate ligand may function as a donor.

Linkage isomer

Two or more coordination compounds in which at least one of the ligands has a different donor atom are called linkage isomers. This type of isomerism can only exist when the compound contains a ligand that can bond to the metal atom in two (or more) different ways.
