Give the oxidation state, d-orbital occupation and coordination number of the central metal ion in the following complexes:
The central metal ion is Mn.
The coordination number is 6.
The oxidation state can be given as:
x + 0 = +2
x = +2
The d orbital occupation for Mn is t2g3 eg2.
∴ Oxidation state, x- + 2
Coordination number is 6.
Mn+2 is a d5 case, paramagnetic
