Firstly, we are not saying that the metal d orbitals aren't involved in the orbitals that bind a complex, but merely that their participation is small. It is perfectly possible, however, to develop a consistent picture of chemical bonding, spectral and magnetic properties together using, as a starting point, the idea that the d orbitals have effectively no participation in the bonding orbitals. 2 The Valence Shell 3d 4s 25 4p Figure 2-3. Contribution to bonding from energy matching with ligand orbitals (O), and from overlap with ligand orbitals (·).

2-1: sometimes, we observe bands which have split into two or more components, so that some of the generalizations above are spoilt. We shall look into these matters in some detail in due course. For the moment, there are two main features of all 'd-d' spectra upon which we must focus: 1) 'd-d' bands are relatively weak, and 2) the number and patterns of 'd-d' absorptions are characterized by the molecular geometry and by the dn configuration. We shall return to 1) in Chapter 4. Here we consider the significance of the dn configuration.

However, the differentiation between the subsets in the octahedron was based on orbitals being oriented directly at or between the point charges; in the tetrahedron, all d orbitals point between the ligands, though some are closer to the point charges than others. Accordingly, the magnitude of the tetrahedral splitting is less than that in the octahedron. Simple geometrical calculations show that, for the same metal (same d orbital radial functions) and for the same bond lengths, these splittings are related by the expression in Eq.
