Metal-Ligand Bonding by E.A. Moore, R. Janes

By E.A. Moore, R. Janes

To understand the chemistry and actual houses of complexes of the transition sequence, an realizing of metal-ligand interactions utilized to complexes of the d-block is required. steel Ligand Bonding goals to supply this via an obtainable, special, non-mathematical procedure. preliminary chapters aspect the crystal-field version, utilizing it to explain using magnetic measurements to tell apart complexes with various digital configurations and geometries. next chapters examine the molecular orbital concept of transition steel complexes utilizing a pictorial method. Bonding in octahedral complexes is explored and digital spectra and magnetic houses are given huge insurance. the cloth addressed during this ebook types the basis of undergraduate lecture classes on d-block chemistry and enables studying via a number of key gains, together with: complete color diagrams; in-text questions with solutions; revision routines and obviously outlined studying results to motivate a reflective method of research; an linked site; and experimental info and observations from way of life. A simple wisdom of atomic and molecular orbitals as utilized to major team parts is believed.

Example text

The size of the ligand-field splitting energy, A,, will depend on the strength of the obonding between metal and ligand; the stronger the bonding the greater will be the energy gap and the stronger the ligand field. To form a strong bond, the ligand must have a filled o-bonding orbital close in energy to that of the metal d orbitals, and which overlaps well with the d orbitals. Write down the electronic configuration for strong-field and weak-field a-bonded d6 transition-metal complexes. a-bonding by itself, however, is not enough to explain the spectrochemical series; the strongest-field ligands such as CO and PR3 owe their strong metal-ligand bonds to their ability to form n; bonds as well as o bonds.

1 is the orbital momentum quantum number, which defines specific sub-shells. m fis the magnetic quantum number, which distinguishes the individual orbitals within a sub-shell. s is the spin quantum number, and m, is the magnetic spin quantum number. 38 ml = +I and one m l= -1 , and the magnetic moments will cancel. In octahedral complexes, dxzand dyzbelong to t2g,and in tetrahedral complexes to t2. Thus, we only expect orbital contributions for complexes with 1 , 2 , 4 and 5 electrons in t2gor t2.

7), we can see that there is a similar advantage for square-planar over tetrahedral complexes. So we would expect square-planar geometry for copper(I1) complexes and for low-spin (strong field) cobalt(I1) and nickel(I1) complexes on crystal-field grounds. 2 The most common four-coordinate geometries for first-row transition elements 3d levels in tetrahedral and square-planar d8 complexes. 31 Other factors also affect the geometry though, particularly steric constraints imposed by multidentate ligands.
