NH3 versus NH4+
1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Why does NH3 readily form complex ions with the transition elements but NH4+ does not?
2. Relevant equations
3. The attempt at a solution
Is it because the transition elements are much more receptive to reacting with a base than with an acid because in fact the transition elements would much prefer to give up an H+ rather than accept one.
