Complete removal of both the axial ligands (along the z-axis) from an octahedral complex leads to which of the following splitting patterns? ( relative orbital energies not on scale).
Valence bond theory (VBT) -
sp3d2 - square bipyramidal or octahedral
d2sp3 - octahedral
sp3 - tetradedral
dsp2 - square planar
sp3d2 - outer complex
d2sp3 - inner complex
Crystal field splitting in octahedral complex -
orbitals are more energetic as compared to
The correct increasing order:
Now, we are removing the ligands that are pretend along 2-direction & all the orbitals containg two component will have a gradual decrease in energy.
Therefore, Orbital splitting will be done as follows
option (2) is correct.
