The theoretical equations of Zeeman energy levels, including the zero-field energies and the first- and second-order Zeeman coefficients, have been obtained in closed form for nine states of the
ground term, considering the axial ligand-field splitting and the spin-orbit coupling. The equations are expressed as the functions of three independent parameters,
is the axial ligand-field splitting parameter,
is the spin-orbit coupling parameter, and
is the effective orbital reduction factor, including the admixing. The equations are useful in simulating magnetic properties (magnetic susceptibility and magnetization) of the complexes with
ground terms, e.g., octahedral vanadium(III), octahedral low-spin manganese(III), octahedral low-spin chromium(II), and tetrahedral nickel(II) complexes.
