Unformatted text preview: d n = 3 Ox = 3 + Ve-s = 15 d n = 0 Ox = 5 + Ve-s = 10 d n = 0 Ox = 6 + Ve-s = 18 d n = 0 Ox = 7 + Ve-s = 18 d n = 6 Ox = 1 + Ve-s = 18 d n = 4 Ox = 5 + Ve-s = 18 d n = 6 Ox = 3 + Ve-s = 18 d n = 5 Ox = 3 + Ve-s = 17 2) For each of the following complexes, draw a crystal-field d-orbital splitting diagram. What is the dn electron count for each molecule? Would you expect the complex to be high-spin or low-spin? Which complexes would be susceptible to a Jahn-Teller distortion?...
