The properties of two isomers C25H22NP and C 26H24NP along with Tolman angles were compared. It was observed that the two compounds were isomorphous, having individual molecules in the centrosymmetric space group C2/c (Z=8). It was also observed that the calculation of the Tolman cone angle was helpful in determining ligand steric behaviour at a metal centre. The results show that the Tolman angle was important for monodentate or monocoordinated ligands.
