The determination by x-ray diffraction methods of the crystal and molecular structures of some coordination compounds: a study of the stereochemistry of pentacoordination

Abstract:

This dissertation in concerned with the stereochemical problem of pentaco-ordination.

The early theoretical work of Pauling, Daudel and Bucher and Linnett gave conflicting predictions about the relative stabilities of the square pryramid and the trigonal bipyramid, and offered no explanation for the many distortions front these idealised geometries observed in pentaco-ordinate complexes. Due to the unsatisfactory description given by ...
