1) Consider the molecule [Nicl]. It is tetrahedral geometry and Ta symmetry Consider the sigma-bo...
Consider a metal atom surrounded by a cube-shaped arrangement of eight ligand atoms (Oh symmetry). (1) Derive the reducible representation for the 8 σ-bonds. (2) Systematically (step-by-step) reduce this representation to its irreducible representations – showing all of your calculations! (3) Which (s, p or d) metal orbitals have the same symmetry as these irreducible representations? (4) Why do we not observe this coordination arrangement?
i can't solve this question of coordination chemistry, could someone hlep me please Exercise 1: 1. What kind(s) of interaction between the ligand and the metal ion is(are) considered in the crystal field approach? 2. Give and justify the degeneracy lifting for a tetrahedral complex. Would it be the same for an octahedral complex? 3. Let us consider hexaaquacopper(II) ion. Justify the elongation of two opposite Cu-O bonds (along z for example) compared to the other four Cu-O bonds using...
