Professor: Chris Chang Due: Thursday, Oct 16, 2008 GSIs: Julian Bigi, Sheel Dodani Chemistry 103 Problem Set #3 1) For the following compounds, give the number of d electrons, place them in the appropriate crystal field, and determine whether they are diamagnetic or paramagnetic. Assume all ligands have the same bond length: Rh(PPh 3 ) 3 Cl (square planar); [CuCl 4 ] 2- (square planar); Rh(PMe 3 ) 4 (tetrahedral); Pt(NH 3 ) 2 Cl 2 (square planar); [CuCl 4 ] 3- (tetrahedral). 2) For each of the following compounds: i) Give the oxidation state of the metal, d electron count, and fill in the crystal field diagram
