Fluoride is a weak ligand and it is unable to bind the inner d orbitals. Cobalt ion has 6 electrons in its 3d orbital in which 4 are unpaired. The Flouride ion pair with the 3d electrons by utilising 1 4s, 3 4p and 2 4d electrons for the hybridisation. Thus, the hybridisation is .
Shape is Octahedral
IUPAC name is hexafluorocobalt(3-)
The electronic configuration of Nickel ion is . Each hybrid orbital is occupied by a pair of electrons from each cyanide molecule. Thus, the hybridisation is . Shape is Square planar IUPAC name is Tetracyanonickelate(II)
