Week 12

2017: Tuesday 21. of March, 8.12-10; Thursday 23. of March 10.10-12

Cu2+-en assignment follow up. Do numbers behave? We may also discuss and compare results.

Ligand field theory for systems with more d-electrons. Weak-field and strong-field approximations.
L-coupling (configuration-interaction) with d2 as an example. Splitting of the L-coupled d2 system in an octahedral ligand field.
- L and S couplings and splittings in two- or more-electron systems.
Tanabe-Sugano diagrammes.
dn -systems.
