Optical isomers and cis en-en
Hello, I am wondering...
If you have two ethylenediamines (en) oriented in a cis en-en fashion, will they always have an optical isomer? I have not found a case yet where they do, and it would probably save time to assume optically active in an environment presseed for time (such as on a test) Thanks.

I suppose you are talking about octahedral complexes don't you?
Yes, cis bidentate complexes are always chiral,
