Geometrical Isomers: Cis and Trans compounds<br />
An aqueous solution of the deep violet cis compound reacts in about 3 hours changing  to magenta and then rose red as H2O molecules displace Cl- ions attached to Co. The trans compound color shift from green to rose is slower, taking about 16 hours.
