Following a recent study of the contrasting effects of FeCl4- versus CrCl63- complex anion formation on the transport properties of solutions containing them, we report a study of the Intermediate cases of MCl42- complex formation (M = Co2+Ni2+and Cd2+). In these cases an Intermediate and unspectacular response is observed, and secondary factors Intercede to produce an apparent contradiction between composition-dependent behavior close to, and far from, the glass transition. The contradictions are resolved by recognizing that, In these Intermediate cases, the predominant effect of complexation is to produce a decrease in liquid “fragility”.
