A rigorous extension to low symmetry systems, whose geometry is based on a high symmetry template, of the previously developed classical symmetry selection rule procedure for generating reaction mechanisms is presented. A framework is thus provided for the study of substituted molecules which takes advantage of their high symmetry template. Transition metal complexes of octahedral parentage are used to illustrate the principles.
