Abstract

An atom-atom interaction model (AAIM) for determining the stable geometries of MLλ molecules is discussed and applied to tris-chelate complexes. This case study illustrates the importance of both attractive and repulsive ligand-ligand interactions in determining transition metal complex geometries. The successes and also failures of Kepert's purely repulsive approach can, as a result, be understood.
