Transition Metal ComplexBonding and SpectroscopyReview

Bonding:Donor-Acceptor Interactions Roles of metal and ligands Making MO Diagrams for Complexes Counting d-electrons Filling in the MO Diagram High spin/Low spin cases Comparing structures for bond strength

Use Angular Overlap parameters:

--for each d-orbital, add up the interactions for all the ligands

-- the total for that orbital determines how much higher its energy gets

Example: Linear shape: ligands at positions 1 and 6dz2 dx2-y2dxydxzdyz1+1 0 0 0 0

MO Diagram:

Example: Square pyramid shape: ligands at positions 1, 2, 3, 4, 5dz2 dx2-y2dxydxzdyz1+4(1/4) 4(3/4) 0 0 0

MO Diagram:

If gap is >=2, then need to consider high/low spin.

If gap is <2, then it is always high spin.

LMCT with Pi Donor Ligands: Mainly oxides and halides

MLCT with Pi Acceptor Ligands and spectroscopy: CO, CN-, pyridine
