Which of the following are true for the Crystal Field Model of an octahedral complex ion? Consider ions to be from first-row transition metals.
a) Two of the 3d orbitals point directly at ligands
b) t2 orbitals are less stable than e orbitals
c) A large crystal field splitting energy results in a diamagnetic complex
d) The high-spin case gives maximum unpaired electrons
e) For a given ligand, Fe3+ increases splitting less than Fe2+
f) Cl- causes a greater increase in the crystal field splitting enery than does H2O
g) The splitting of energy (E) of 3d orbitals occurs in the ligands
