D-d splitting in transition metal ions

With only one $d$ orbital occupied by an electron in an ocathedral Ti(III) complex the remaining $d$ orbitals are virtual states only, so to speak of splitting between them is not really proper. But ...

Charge of a complex ion

You are doing nothing wrong, but you are confusing the formal charge with the oxidation state. The formal charge is the charge that an atom would have if all the bonding electrons were equally shared ...

Naming and structure of PtCl4.2HCl (complex/coordination compound)

Neither $\ce{H2PtCl6}$ nor $\ce{PtCl4•2HCl}$ is strictly correct. As explained by Nilay Ghosh, only $\ce{(H3O)2PtCl6}$ (typically with additiinal water of hydration) is known in practice, for the ...

Transition of electrons between t2g and eg to give colour of coordination compounds

So, how the electrons will transfer from the t2g orbitals to any higher filled orbital? This concept of t2g and eg comes in crystal field theory. According to NCERT chemistry class 12 it is written ...

Colour of coordination compounds due to d-d transition

Here is a copy of the published explanation as printed in the first reference, that looks reasonable : In $\ce{Ni(H2O)6]^{2+}}$, $\ce{H2O}$ is a weak field ligand. In this complex, the d electrons ...
