    isolobal analogies i can explain or i can show you a link since i can't really draw pictures well on this http://www.adichemistry.com/inorganic/cochem/isolobality/isolobal-analogy.html

    Oh! I think i'm more familiar with the term "isoelectronic" idk if it's the same.

    isoelectronic is more about the number of electrons, this is more about the molecular orbitals

    I don't know about isobal, but I do know that a d7 complex has one electron in it's eg set allowing for pi-backbonding

    would you deduce that from the location of the orbital given that it's octahedral?

    Yes. Assuming octahedral geometry, you have 3 orbitals in the t2g set, dxy, dxz, and dyz. and x2-y2 and z2 in the eg set (antibonding) which are higher in energy.

    assuming d7, you would have the t2g set filled and one electron in the eg set allowing bonding.

    allowing to bond with a molecule that donates one electron? Such as methane.

    I don't know abt isobal, but i'm just going by what I think might be relevant? So I am not sure if i am actually answering your question correctly. Lol sorry abt that.

    thanks man, any input is helpful for a well-rounded understanding of chem, specially inorganic chem, which you're one of the few people on this site that actually know about. lol btw, which textbook did you use?

    Inorganic Chemistry by Meissler 3rd ed. But i hear 4th ed is by far best

    did you find it hard to read? I'm using Housecroft for my class but it honestly takes me forever to read a few pages, it's way too dense.
