Configurations of M(L-L)3 complexes

Cobalt oxalate (ethandioate) [Co(ox)3]3- complex



Chiral octahedral complexes, with chelating ligands can have two different configurations (as shown above). Δ (delta) is used to indicate clockwise rotation of the helix. While Λ (lambda) is used to indicate anticlockwise rotation of the helix.
