A model which accounts for both the kinetic and potential superexchange in σ bonded transition metal complexes is described. The relative contributions of ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic interactions to the total exchange constant are discussed. The model is applied in a parametrical form to correlate experimental magnetochemical data on mono- and bi-hydroxo-bridged copper(II) dimers with their bridging geometry.
