Answer to Question #32189 in Inorganic Chemistry for BMALATHY

Question #32189
1.HOW CAN WE CALCULATE MICRO STATES IN COORDINATION COMPOUND?
2.WHICH COMPLEX ABSORB LIGHT IN LONGER WAVELENGTH?
Expert's answer
1. Microstates – the electronic states that are possible for a given electronic configuration.
- no two electrons may have the same set of quantum numbers (Pauli exclusion principle)
- only unique microstates may be included
Number of microstates in a free-ion term is equal to (2L + 1)(2S +1).

2. Absorbing at longest wavelength means having the smallest energy difference in the orbitals.

The colors of the compounds are related to the magnitude of ? (the d-orbital splitting value). The weak field compounds will have the smallest, so the light absorbed will be longest.

Strong-field ligands absorb higher energy light (violet light, for example, with ~400 nm), while weak-field ligands absorb lower energy light (red light, for example, with ~650 nm).
