Can octahedral t2g6 complexes substitute associatively? The case of the isoelectronic Ruthenium(II) and Rhodium(III) hexaaquaions

Journal Article (Review;Journal)

The hexaaquaions of Rh(III) and Ru(II) seem to undergo water exchange via disparate mechanisms in spite of being isoelectronic in nature. The possibility for a t2g6 ion to undergo ligand substitution reaction via an Ia mechanism definitely complicates simple rules for mechanistic interpretation and supports critics who disfavor broad application of δV≠ data to mechanistic interpretation.
