Abstract:  .By analyzing experimental structure data of hexaaqua and hexachloro complexes it was found that the tetragonal bipyramid is a more frequent form of the coordination polyhedron in comparison with the octahedral con­figuration. Moreover, the axial and equatorial metal—ligand distances exhibit, also in these complexes, a mutual dependence of the smooth curve type which manifests itself so that with increasing axial bond length the equatorial distance is shortened and vice versa. Individual factors operative in such dependences are discussed in more detail, namely the central atom effect and the host lattice effect.
