Hello,I have a question that hopefully a more knowledgable chemist may be able to help me with. I'm currently writing a piece for college about the properties of ionic compounds and i was wondering if the coordination number of a compound had any effect on the boiling or melting point?. I thought it might be that the higher the coordination number the higher the b/m point but i couldnt seem to find the information in any of the books i've got or the websites i tried.Thanks alot (also first post so hello everyone)
Thanks for taking the time to supply this information. It's much appreciated If i understand correctly, the formula would suggest that as a higher coordination number is responsible for an increased lattice energy this would result in an increased boiling/melting point. i think [?]
Thanks for your help lightarrow.
