Intuitive Explanation for why more negative charge on ligand does not imply more splitting effect?

I have studied coordination chemistry as part of my school curriculum and we covered Crystal Field Theory as our final theory, and the book says that Ligand Field Theory and Molecular Orbital Theory are used to explain the limitations of CFT but are beyond our scope of learning. One of the limitations of CFT according […]
