Is oxidation no. Has any relationship with the low spin of tetrahedral complexes in

Expert Answer:

Crystal field splitting energy and the pairing energy these two quantities determine whether a certain field is low spin or high spin. 

All tetrahedral complexes are high-spin since the CFSE is normally smaller than the paring energy.

So low spin configurations are rarely observed.

Usually, if a very strong field ligand is present, the square planar geometry will be favored.
