Bonding and splitting of the d-orbitals (Section 23.5) (i) Metal-ligand bonds 46 - lone-pairs from ligands form sigma bonds with metal - these are polar covalent bonds - empty metal orbitals are hybridized and produced the shapes observed - bonds do NOT involve the orbitals containing d-electrons (Valence bond theory) (octahedral, tetrahedral, square planar) Cannot explain colour or magnetic properties Problem: (ii) Crystal Field Theory 47 - Review shapes and names of the d-orbitals (CHEM 101) - Effects on energies of d-orbitals as ligands approach A.
