Question

I have the following ligands (ethanol, acetonitrile, isonicotinate, triphenylphosphine, benzaldehyde, &

TosMIC) binding to dirhodium tetraacetate and forming dirhodium complexes.


Can you help me organize the above ligands in a spectrochemical series and help me identify if they're weak or strong pi acceptors or pi donors?


Finally, can you help me understand how each ligand interacts with the dimetal center in regards to HOMO and LUMO?


Thanks!
