Review concepts
d block vs transition elements
d e vs incomplete d shell Electronic configurations Triad Platinum group

Physical properties
Hard, malleable, ductile, electrical conductor Metallic size s block vs d-block cn 12 cp Lanthanide contraction bet 4d and 5d approx same size in a row for d block S size > d size Harder d than s block Less volatile than s block

Characteristic properties and reactivities

Formation of ions ' f G = -nFEox = nFEred = ' f H T' f S = - >'aG + 'hydG + ~( IE1+IE2)] 'G1 Fe2+ (aq) + 2e Fe(s) 'hydG

d9 s2 d9 vs d9 s2 d10

d4 s2 d4 vs d4 s2 d5

E0 M+2/M Also reflects d e distribution, IE1 + IE2 Irving Williams series

General reactivities
Binary oxide, sulfide, halide formation When heated in O2 M2On in S M2Sn in X2 MXn Interstitial hydrides may form with H2 also borides, carbides, nitrides Most M in acids H2 (corrode) But passivation or oxide formation prevents some

M+2 + 2Cl- MCl2 M + Cl2

Colors or Spectra
Most colored Absence of color no dd or very high energy uv or low energy ir Intensity of color depends if allowed orbitally and by spin conservation rules Color transmitted complementary to color absorbed Aq ions due to d-d transitions
Oh wea k band pale due to La Porte forbidden gg but when no Inversion center in complex like Td strong

But ionized coordinated water produces intense color due to charge transfer from ligand oxide or hydroxide to metal d orbitals or LMCT In other complexes intense colors due to MLCT or with S rich ligand based transitions

Magnetic Properties
Usually on account of unpaired d e Paramagnetic species Diamagnetic e all paired Magnetic moments, P, and susceptibilities Fm measured P spin only = n(n+2) = 2 S(S+1) Also detecred with EPR and Mossbauer Manifest in NMR with anomalous chemical shifts and shapes in lines, relaxation lifetimes in MRI as relaxation agents

Complex Formation
