Ligand Field Theory

Logo for Ligand Field Theory
An important aspect of simple Crystal Field Theory is the orientation of the d-orbital lobes with respect to the position of the surrounding ligands. Note that the lobes point towards either the centres of the faces (where the ligands would sit for an octahedral complex) or the edges (where the ligands sit in tetrahedral complexes).
