Professor: Chris Chang Due: Thursday, September 27, 2012 GSIs: Stephanie Jones, David Zee 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 (complete with orbital labels). ii) Predict whether the complex would be labile or inert and explain your answer. a) b) c) d) 3) More electron counting! For the following complexes, determine the formal oxidation state of the metal center, the d electron count for the metal center, and the total electron count for
