octahedral distortion in metal transition complex
« on: January 24, 2021, 05:59:51 AM »
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)4O2+/- 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??
THANKS :)
