Ligand field theory LFT describes the bonding, orbital arrangement, and other characteristics of coordination complexes. These orbitals are of appropriate energy to form bonding interaction with ligands.
A perspective on applications of ligand-field analysis: inspiration from electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy of coordination complexes of transition metal ions.
Crystal field theory states that d or f orbital degeneracy can be broken by the electric field produced by ligands, stabilizing the complex. Discuss the relationships between ligand binding in a metal complex and the degeneracy of the d orbitals and between the geometry of a metal complex and the splitting of the d orbitals. It describes the effect of the attraction between the positive charge of the metal cation and negative charge on the non-bonding electrons of the ligand.
When the ligands approach the central metal ion, the degeneracy of electronic orbital states, usually d or f orbitals, are broken due to the static electric field produced by a surrounding charge distribution. CFT successfully accounts for some magnetic properties, colors, and hydration energies of transition metal complexes, but it does not attempt to describe bonding.
The electrons in the d orbitals of the central metal ion and those in the ligand repel each other due to repulsion between like charges. Therefore, the d electrons closer to the ligands will have a higher energy than those further away, which results in the d orbitals splitting in energy.
This splitting is affected by:. All of the d orbitals have four lobes of electron density, except for the d z2 orbital, which has two opposing lobes and a doughnut of electron density around the middle.
The d orbitals can also be divided into two smaller sets. The d x2 — y2 and d z2 all point directly along the x, y, and z axes.
They form an e g set. On the other hand, the lobes of the d xy , d xz , and d yz all line up in the quadrants, with no electron density on the axes. These three orbitals form the t 2g set. In most cases, the d orbitals are degenerate, but sometimes they can split, with the e g and t 2g subsets having different energy. The CFT accounts for this. The central model shows the combined d-orbitals on one set of axes. The crystal field stabilization energy CFSE is the stability that results from placing a transition metal ion in the crystal field generated by a set of ligands.
It arises due to the fact that when the d orbitals are split in a ligand field, some of them become lower in energy than before. For example, in the case of an octahedron, the t 2g set becomes lower in energy. As a result, if there are any electrons occupying these orbitals, the metal ion is more stable in the ligand field by the amount known as the CFSE. Conversely, the e g orbitals are higher in energy. So, putting electrons in them reduces the amount of CFSE.
Octahedral CFT splitting : Electron diagram for octahedral d shell splitting. Crystal field stabilization is applicable to the transition-metal complexes of all geometries. The reason that many d 8 complexes are square-planar is the very large amount of crystal field stabilization that this geometry produces with this number of electrons.
Square planar CFT splitting : Electron diagram for square planer d subshell splitting. Octahedral complexes have six ligands symmetrically arranged around a central atom, defining the vertices of an octahedron. Octahedral molecular geometry describes the shape of compounds wherein six atoms or groups of atoms or ligands are symmetrically arranged around a central atom.
The octahedron has eight faces, hence the prefix octa-. An example of an octahedral compound is molybdenum hexacarbonyl Mo CO 6. The term octahedral is used somewhat loosely by chemists, focusing on the geometry of the bonds to the central atom and not considering differences among the ligands themselves.
Hexamminecobalt III chloride : Example of an octahedral coordination complex. When two or more types of ligands are coordinated to an octahedral metal center, the complex can exist as isomers.
The number of possible isomers can reach 30 for an octahedral complex with six different ligands in contrast, only two stereoisomers are possible for a tetrahedral complex with four different ligands.
In an octahedral complex, this degeneracy is lifted. On the other hand, the d xz , d xy , and d yz orbitals the so-called t 2g set see a decrease in energy. Given that such a variety of octahedral complexes exist, it is not surprising that a wide variety of reactions have been described.
These reactions can be classified as follows:. Many reactions of octahedral transition metal complexes occur in water. Tetrakis triphenylphosphine palladium : 3-dimensional representation of tetrahedral Tetrakis triphenylphosphine palladium. In tetrahedral molecular geometry, a central atom is located at the center of four substituent atoms, which form the corners of a tetrahedron.
The bond angles are approximately This geometry is widespread, particularly for complexes where the metal has d 0 or d 10 electron configuration. Nickel carbonyl : 2-dimensional representation of tetrahedral nickel carbonyl. For example, tetrakis triphenylphosphine palladium 0 , a popular catalyst, and nickel carbonyl, an intermediate in nickel purification, are tetrahedral.
Many complexes with incompletely filled d-subshells are tetrahedral as well—for example, the tetrahalides of iron II , cobalt II , and nickel II. Tetrahedral complexes have ligands in all of the places that an octahedral complex does not.
Therefore, the crystal field splitting diagram for tetrahedral complexes is the opposite of an octahedral diagram. In contrast, the d xy ,d yz , and d xz axes lie directly on top of where the ligands go. This maximizes repulsion and raises energy levels.
Tetrahedral CFT splitting : Notice the energy splitting in the tetrahedral arrangement is the opposite for the splitting in octahedral arrangements. Carboplatin : 2- and 3-dimensional representations of the anti-cancer drug carboplatin. In square planar molecular geometry, a central atom is surrounded by constituent atoms, which form the corners of a square on the same plane. The geometry is prevalent for transition metal complexes with d 8 configuration.
Notable examples include the anticancer drugs cisplatin [PtCl 2 NH 3 2 ] and carboplatin. In principle, square planar geometry can be achieved by flattening a tetrahedron. As such, the interconversion of tetrahedral and square planar geometries provides a pathway for the isomerization of tetrahedral compounds. CFT energy diagram for square planar complexes : Notice how the d x 2 — y 2 orbital is unfilled.
The removal of a pair of ligands from the z-axis of an octahedron leaves four ligands in the x-y plane. Therefore, the crystal field splitting diagram for square planar geometry can be derived from the octahedral diagram. The removal of the two ligands stabilizes the d z2 level, leaving the d x2 -y 2 level as the most destabilized.
Consequently, the d x2 -y 2 remains unoccupied in complexes of metals with the d 8 configuration. These compounds typically have sixteen valence electrons eight from ligands, eight from the metal. Transition metal complexes are often colored due to either d-d or change band electron transitions induced by the absorption of light. Metal complexes often have spectacular colors caused by electronic transitions induced by the absorption of light.
For this reason, they are often applied as pigments. We know that light can be emitted corresponding to the difference in energy levels. We could expect them to come from the d-orbitals. This is because they are not involved in bonding, since they do not overlap with the s and p orbitals of the ligands. Most transitions that are related to colored metal complexes are either d—d transitions or charge band transfer.
In a d—d transition, an electron in a d orbital on the metal is excited by a photon to another d orbital of higher energy. In complexes of the transition metals, the d orbitals do not all have the same energy.
In centrosymmetric complexes, d-d transitions are forbidden by the Laporte rule. The Laporte rule states that, if a molecule is centrosymmetric, transitions within a given set of p or d orbitals are forbidden.
However, forbidden transitions are allowed if the center of symmetry is disrupted. Transitions that occur as a result of an asymmetrical vibration of a molecule are called vibronic transitions. Through such asymmetric vibrations, transitions that would theoretically be forbidden, such as a d-d transition, are weakly allowed.
An example occurs in octahedral complexes such as in complexes of manganese II. It has a d 5 configuration in which all five electrons have parallel spins. The color of such complexes is much weaker than in complexes with spin-allowed transitions. In fact, many compounds of manganese II , like manganese II chloride, appear almost colorless.
Tetrahedral complexes have somewhat more intense color. This is because mixing d and p orbitals is possible when there is no center of symmetry.
Therefore, transitions are not pure d-d transitions. Example of weaker color due to d-d transition : Sample of manganese II chloride. Electrons can also be transferred between the orbitals of the metal and the ligands. These are most likely to occur when the metal is in a low oxidation state and the ligand is easily reduced. Examples of color due to LCMT transitions : Samples of from top to bottom potassium chromate, potassium dichromate, and potassium permanganate.
These can most easily occur when the metal is in a high oxidation state. For example, the color of chromate, dichromate, and permanganate ions is due to LMCT transitions. We can perceive colors for two reasons: either we see it because that color is the only color not absorbed or because all colors of visible light are absorbed except for a particular color known as its complimentary color.
Large energy differences should correspond to smaller wavelengths and purple colors, while small energy differences should result in large wavelengths and colors closer to red. For example, you might expect to see red for a complex with a small energy gap and large wavelength.
Green is the compliment of red, so complexes with a small energy gap will actually appear green. The color we see for coordination complexes is a result of absorption of complimentary colors. A decrease in the wavelength of the complimentary color indicates the energy gap is increasing and can be used to make general rankings in the strengths of electric fields given off by ligands.
These phenomena can be observed with the aid of electronic spectroscopy also known as UV-Vis. Discuss the correlation between the electronic structure of a coordination complex and its magnetic properties.

Georgi Bontchev Street 11, Sofia, Bulgaria. Over the last few years, ab initio ligand field theory AILFT has evolved into an important tool for the extraction of ligand field models from ab initio calculations. The inclusion of dynamic correlation on top of complete active space self-consistent field CASSCF reference functions, which is important for accurate results, was so far realized at the level of second-order N-electron valence state perturbation theory NEVPT2.
