Crystal Field Splitting Parameters

The energy difference between splitted d-orbitals i.e. t2g and eg in octahedral field and t2 and e in tetrahedral field is called Crystal Field Splitting Parameters.
It is denoted by 10Dq or Δ.
Crystal Field Splitting Parameters
Crystal Field Splitting Parameters Value
Where-
Z= Charge on the metal ion
e = Charge on the ligand
r = Average distance of d-orbitals charge density
a = Inter nuclear distance between metal ion and ligand
μ = Dipole moment of the ligand

Factors affecting magnitude of 10Dq / Δ
