9.25 Explain the violet colour of the complex on the basis of crystal field theory.
In ground state,Ti has 23 electrons with electronic configuration 3d34s2.
The oxidation state of Ti in the given compound is +3.
Hence it will now have the configuration 3d2. Since it has 2 unpaired electrons and has the ability to undergo d-d transition, the given complex gives violet colour.
