Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0isolobal 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/isolobalanalogy.html

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Oh! I think i'm more familiar with the term "isoelectronic" idk if it's the same.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0isoelectronic is more about the number of electrons, this is more about the molecular orbitals

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I don't know about isobal, but I do know that a d7 complex has one electron in it's eg set allowing for pibackbonding

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0would you deduce that from the location of the orbital given that it's octahedral?

abb0t

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yes. Assuming octahedral geometry, you have 3 orbitals in the t2g set, dxy, dxz, and dyz. and x2y2 and z2 in the eg set (antibonding) which are higher in energy.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2assuming d7, you would have the t2g set filled and one electron in the eg set allowing bonding.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thanks man, any input is helpful for a wellrounded 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Inorganic Chemistry by Meissler 3rd ed. But i hear 4th ed is by far best

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0did 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I have the PDF version, if u have dropbox, u can download it. it was pretty clear.
