Which of the following pairs of ions are isoelectronic and isostructural?
ISOELECTRONIC SPECIES: the elements or ions which have same number of electrons are known as isoelectronic species. They may vary in their chemical and physical properties.
ISOSTRUCTURAL SPECIES: the compounds which have same shape and hyberdisation is called isostructural species.
There are 32 electrons in and sp2 hyberdisation.
In also there are 32 electrons and sp2 hyberdisation.
Both have trigonal planar structure, therefore they are isolectronic as well as isostructural species.
Hence the correct option is (i).
