Those do not involve d orbitals, so there is no crystal field theory or ligand theory. Do we have a name of study that only involves p orbitals? Since I think molecular theory is for all s p d f orbitals and transitions.

  • $\begingroup$ According to ChatGPT, is due to leaving 2 unpaired electrons in an antibonding orbital, the interaction between these unpaired electrons causes a splitting of the energy levels, resulting in the absorption and reflection of light. $\endgroup$ Commented Mar 26, 2023 at 11:05
