Reading: CHP 10 Coordination II, LFT: Sect 10.3

Lecture Videos:

  1. LFT: Creating an Oh MO diagram for a metal complex
  2. LFSE: Ligand Field Stabilization Energy
  3. pi-bonding in complexes

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Be able to produce a MO diagram for an octahedral and tetrahedral structure with sigma donor ligands
  2. Explain the advantages of the LFT compared to CFT
  3. Show the affect of pi-donors and acceptors on energies of the d-orbitals
  4. The following applications of CFT theory can also be understood using LFT
  • use crystal field theory to describe the relative d-orbital energies, spin state, and magnetism of transition metal complexes
    1. Oh, Td, SQ Planar, Tetragonal, SQ Pyramid, TBP 
  • understand the difference between strong and weak-field ligands
  • calculate LFSE for Oh and Td complexes
  • predict the geometries of metal complexes based on LFSE
