Unformatted text preview: energy between the t 2g and e g levels. The transition between the two levels will require low energy photons, so orange color light is absorbed and blue light is transmitted. A similar argument occurs for the diamagnetic, low spin complex. The crystal field splitting is large and a more energetic (blue) photon is needed for the transition. Now the orange light is transmitted. Return to: Chem 6 Home Page...
