Purple Haze

Purple Haze, all in my flask
Solution colored, explain this, my task,
Coordination, crystal field theory,
Ligands bonded, partial d occupancy,

Cis or trans, fac or mer, please state,
Labile, inert, some ligands chelate,
Octa- or tetrahedral, or square planar,
Low spin, high spin, d5, weak color,

Spectrochemical, fields weak and strong,
Read the chapter, and make a song,
Ligand field theory, pi back bonding,
Organometallic, catalysis I sing,
