Asked Jan 4, 2020

<p>Explain the differences between weak-field and strong-fieldmetal complexes.


Expert Answer

Step 1

The crystal field splitting energy is found to be more in the presence of strong field ligand whereas the splitting energy will be less for a weak field ligand.

Step 2

A strong field ligand makes the electrons pair up in d orbitals to give rise to low spin co...
