SALC d-d Orbital Overlap

s,p,d Bonding

These diagrams show the origin of σ π and δ bonding between two d orbitals aligned along the z axis.

dz2 is capable of forming a σ interaction with another dz2

Both dxz and dyz can form π bonds with each other.

dx2-y2 and dxy can interact with each other to form δ bonds.
