In a coordination entity, the electronic configuration of the central metal ion is t 2 g 3 e g 1  

(A) Is the coordination compound a high spin or low spin complex? 

Answer

    • High spin complexes are formed when a maximum number of unpaired electrons are present in the d-orbital.
    • Low spin complexes are formed when a minimum number of unpaired electrons are present in the d-orbital.
    • The complex gives the configuration t 2 g 3 eg 1 , which indicates ∆o < P.
    • Since there are 4 unpaired electrons , it forms a high spin complex .
