Polarizability of ligands

  1. Dec 10, 2016 #1

    why polarizability of ligand -OH2 is bigger than of -H? what is the polarizability of NO2 comparing to them and e.g. I? i know that for halogens, it increase with increase of size of halogen down the group (electrons have more space on bigger atom), but how it is with other ligands?

    Thank you.
