    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 tetrahderal complexes are high spin.

    how can I explain the above question using CFSE splitting diagram?

    thank you
