Textbook Problem

In an octahedral complex, the d orbitals split into two groups. Which d orbitals are in the lower energy group? (Assume the ligands lie along the x, y, and z axes.)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The d orbital in lower energy group present at the splitting of the orbitals has to be determined.

Concept introduction: The transition metal atoms have a tendency to form complex compounds that are linked to the certain neutral or ionic species and this leads to the formation of coordination compounds. There exists a large number of coordination compounds that have a large number of applications in the chemical industry as well as in daily life.

Explanation

The five d orbitals get divided into two sets that is dxy, dyz and dxz orbitals forms one set and dx2-y2and dz2 forms another set. The first set are oriented between the x, y and z axes whereas the second set gets oriented along the axis
