Homework Help: The 465 complex

  1. Apr 30, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I found out this reaction series in my textbook which is as:
    ##2Cu(NO_3)_2+2Na_2S_2O_3 \longrightarrow Cu_2(NO_3)_2 +Na_2S_4O_6+2NaNO_3##
    ## Cu_2(NO_3)_2+Na_2S_2O_3 (excess) \longrightarrow Na_4[Cu_6(S_2O_3)_5] ##
    Though it is not balanced(latter one) but my question is about the complex that is formed. What is it's geometry and what is the hybridisation of ##Cu## in this complex?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I don't know. I have never seen any thing like this before. It's an awkward looking compound but still I have curiosity how these type of monsters are made up.
