The given complex ion is as follows, [Ru (CN) (CO)₄]⁻Where; [ ] = Sphere of Coordination Uk = Central Metal Atom = Ruthenium CN = Cyanide Ligand CO = Carbonyl LigandThe charge in the Uk is calculated as follows, Uk + (CN) + (CO)₄ = -1Where; -1 = global burden in the sphere 0 = Load on neutral CO -1 = Load in CNSo, Putting the values, Uk + (-1) + (0)₄ = -1 Uk - 1 + 0 = -1 Uk - 1 = -1 Uk = -1 + 1 Ru = 0Result: Oxidation state of the metal species in each complex [Ru(CN)(CO)₄]⁻ is zero.
