Orbital Phase Perspective of Goodenough-Kanamori-Anderson Rules (GKA Rules) in Superexchange Interaction

Goodenough-Kanamori-Anderson rules (GKA rules) in superexchange interaction discriminate the magnetic properties of two magnetic metal ions bridged with an anion. We propose here that the GKA rules can be explained in terms of the orbital phase continuity-discontinuity property of cyclic orbital interaction including direct metal-metal orbital interaction.
