d Orbitals in an Octahedral Ligand Field


Here is a page that shows the d orbitals in an axis set. Running the mouse over an orbital reveals the "name" of that orbital. This is good practice for helping students link the name of an orbital to the orientation. This page is linked to an interactive 3-dimensional applet, similar to the one above, that shows the d orbitals in an octahedral ligand field. The user may also click on the name of any one of the d orbitals to obtain a larger 3-dimensional image. The images are rotatable and scalable.
