Cage complexes and their stereochemistry
« on: May 09, 2020, 04:38:47 AM »
Hi there all,
Have been wondering about the stereoisomerism in the following complex:

How many stereoisomers could this complex have?
I think the cobalt centre is chiral right? But then each of the nitrogens also seems chiral and could each have up or down-facing hydrogen each?
What would these stereoisomers be classified as? Enantiomers or diastereomers?
Many thanks!

I think, your picture is wrong.
