I dont' understand very well when a distortion (for example z axis elogantion/compression) can occour in an octahedral complex
-I've read that can occour when the six ligand are different...for example [M(Cl)4
] +/- n
...the oxygen ligands can cause a compression on the z-axis
- In another example I've seen a complex with the same 6 ligands [M(NH3)6
] that can follow an octahedral distartion....but usually when is a d8
So can a distortion occour in both cases??
