Coordination Chemistry

A particular metal ion octahedral complex has the same number of unpaired electrons (non-zero) whether the complex uses weak or strong field ligands. List several fourth period transition metal ions that could have this behavior.

Also, if someone could point me in the direction of some additional sources/ materials that might dumb coordination chemistry down for me, I'd really appreciate it.

    You write the electron structure like this. 1s2 2s2 2p6 3s2 3p6 3d10 4s1 is the neutral Cu atom. Remove the two outside electrons to make the Cu^+2 ion. That leaves us with 3d9 as the outside and since that is an odd number, one

    The complex [Co(ox)3]4- has a high-spin electron configuration. How many unpaired electrons are there in the complex? I know because it's a high-spin, it's tetrahydral shaped. But I don't know what (ox) is so, I'm stuck in finding
