Conference paper


The known spectral properties of transition metal complexes in which the metal ion has the 3d4 configuration are quite limited. Several recent books (1,2) emphasize this fact by their rather meager presentation of data. Of these discussions, BALLHAUSEN (1) presents the most nearly complete consideration of the data.
