I've been on a couple other boards and the response I got was 'read your textbook'. The textbook isn't really explaining the concept at all, hence my search for an answer...

    Help in Explanation of structure of hexaammini Ni +2 according to Valence bond theory

    NH3 is a strong ligand...and there remains 2 unpaired electrons in 3d orbital of Ni(+2)...then why doesnt back pairing occur to vacant one 3d orbital due to strong ligand and dsp3d(which doesnt exist) hybridisation occur????i know that it is just a case of outer orbital complex with strong...
