why is it that d5 octahedral complexes may exist in either high spin or low spin configurations, but d5 tetrahedral complexes are always in a high spin configuration?
I know that almost all tetrahedral complexes are high spin because delta t is much smaller than delta o.
how can I explain the above question using the CFSE splitting diagram?
