1. Draw the orbital overlap that would occur for the bonding interaction of NO and NO* with a metal,
respectively. Label the specific metal and ligand orbitals used in each case. (Hint: Consider how the
AO/MO orbital symmetry would overlap). Based on the number of electron domains on the nitrogen
atom in each case, NO and NO*, what is the VSEPR molecular geometry of the M-NO bond? ALSO,
indicate the approximate M-N-O bond angles.
Draw and label the frontier orbitals of an octakedral M(NO)6 complex for the neutral NO and cationic
NO* ligands. Make sure to include orbital symmetry label information (g. u, nb, *). Which complex do
you expect to have a larger 4.? Please justify your answer.
Please calculate the number of electrons in both the axidized and reduced [Cu(phen)2]" complexe
using the ionic method.
