Definition of a Group:
A set of elements G is said to form a group if in G there is defined an operation (called
product and denoted by X) such that
1-for A, B elements of G, A X B is an element of G. In other words t

Explain, using molecular orbital theory terms why the 18 electron rule is so important for
organometallic compounds, yet it is not as important for classical Werner type complexes.
In organometallic chemistry the t2g orbitals actually participate in bon
