1 Theories of Chemical Bonding
Theories of bonding: explanations for chemical bond, Lewis dot structures and the following. Valance-bond (VB) theory Hybridization of atomic orbitals Multiple covalent bonds Molecular orbital (MO) theory Delocalized electrons Bonding in metals Practice mental reasoning and verbal explanation Theories of chemical bonding

2 Energy of Interaction Between Two H Atoms
Energies of attraction and repulsion as functions of distance between two H atoms are shown here. The minimum of the attraction force occur at H–H bond length of 74 pm, at which, the antibonding orbital is +346 kJ mole–1 above 0, energy when H atoms are far apart. Potential energy +346 kJ mol –1 antibonding distance –346 kJ mol –1 H – H bond How does energy affect the two-atom system? Theories of chemical bonding

3 The Valence-bond Method
Valence bond method considers the covalent bond as a result of overlap of atomic orbitals. Electrons stay in regions between the two atoms. Some bond examples s-s s-p s-d p-p p-d d-d H-H H-C H-Pd C-C Se-F Fe-Fe (?) Li-H H-N in Pd P-P H-F hydride But overlapping of simple atomic orbitals does not explain all the features. Thus, we have to take another look, or do something about atomic orbitals – hybridization. How does valence-bond approach explain the formation of chemical bonds? Theories of chemical bonding

4 Hybridization of Atomic Orbitals
The solutions of Schrodinger equation led to these atomic orbitals. 1s, 2s, 2p, 3s, 3p, 3d, 4s, 4p, 4d, 4f, etc. However, overlap of these orbitals does not give a satisfactory explanation. In order to explain bonding, these orbitals are combined to form new set of orbitals – this method is called hybridization. During the lecture, these hybridized orbitals will be explained: sp 2 sp hybrid orbitals from mixing of a s and a p orbital sp 2 3 sp2 hybrid orbitals from mixing of a s and 2 p orbital sp3 fill in you explanation please sp3d 5 sp3d hybrid orbitals from mixing of a s and 3 p and a d orbital sp3d 2 ____________ Provide a description for hybrid orbitals sp, sp2, sp3, sp3d, and sp3d2 Theories of chemical bonding

8 Triple Bonds in H-CC-H

10 Bonding of CO2 For CO2, the C atom forms a s bond and a p bond with each of two O atoms. The two nodal planes of the two p bonds are also perpendicular.

17 The sp3d Hybrid Orbitals
Hybridization of one s, three p, and a d orbitals results in 5 sp3d hybrid orbitals. The arrangement of these orbitals is a trigonal pyramid. Some structures due to these type of orbitals are PClF4, TeCl4E, and BrF3E2. How many unshared electron pairs are present in TeCl4 and BrF3? What are their shapes? Theories of chemical bonding

AX6,   AX5E,   AX4E2   AX3E3   and   AX2E4 IOF5,   IF5E,   XeF4E2 No known compounds of AX3E3 and AX2E4 are known or recognized, because they are predicted to have a T shape and linear shape respectively when the lone pairs of electrons are ignored.

20 Why Molecular Orbital (MO) Theory
Lewis dot and valence bond theories do not always give satisfactory account for various properties of molecules. For example, the dot and VB theory does not explain the fact that O2 is paramagnetic and has a double bond. Dot and VB structures : O O : • O O • are unsatisfactory. MO theory, different from VB in that MO theory considers the orbitals of the whole molecules. However the approach of linear-combination-of-atomic-orbitals (LCAO) is usually used. There are other reasons, but it’s human nature to theorize. The theory is beautiful, and worth learning or teaching. Theories of chemical bonding

21 The Molecular Orbital (MO) Theory
For a molecule, there are certain orbitals each of which accommodates two electrons of opposite spin. The MO theory combines atomic orbitals (AO) to form MOs, & this method is called LCAO s* The two atoms in the H2 molecule may be represented by A and B. Their s orbitals 1sA and 1sB respectively, are used for two MOs: s* = 1sA – 1sB s = 1sA + 1sB The energy levels of these AO and MO are represented by the diagram here, with the math hidden. 1sA 1sB s MO AO AO Theories of chemical bonding

24 Electronic Configuration of H2-type Molecules
From the previous theory, we can fill the M Os with electrons for the H2-type molecule: Molecule e-configuration Bond order bondlength H2+ 1s (1s1) ½ 106 pm H2, He22+ 1s , ~75 H2–, He2+ 1s2 1s* ½ ~106, 108 H22–, He2 1s2 1s*2 0 not formed Describe the relationships of bondlength & bondorder and e-configurations; learn to reason Theories of chemical bonding

25 Sigma MOs Formed Using p AOs
Sigma MOs (s2p s2p* ) can be formed using p AOs, similar to VB theory. The gain in bonding orbital s2p (lower energy) is at the expense of the anti-bonding orbital s2p* (higher energy) Theories of chemical bonding Generalize the technique of LCAO

27 Theories of chemical bonding
MO Diagrams for O2 and F2 A full diagram of the energy level of molecular orbitals of O2 and F2 is shown here. The relative (approximate) height of these energies will be explained verbally during the lecture, and you are suppose to be able to do the same. Write the electronic configurations for O2, O2–, F2, F2– & Ne2. Theories of chemical bonding

29 MO Energy Level Diagram for Be2 – N2
Due to close energy levels of 2s and 2p, the MO energy level diagram for Be2 to N2 differs from those of O2 to F2. Reasons and explanation are given during the lecture. Hope you can do the same.                                                              Give electronic configurations for Be2+, Be2–, B2+, B2, B2–, C2+, C2, C2–, N2+, N2, N2–. See p. 457 for two MO energy-level diagrams Theories of chemical bonding

This sp mixing effect is more detailed than that required for freshman chemistry (not to be tested). The sp mixing of AO gives stronger s2s bond and a weaker s*2s bond. Thus, the split from 2s is not even. Effects on other bonds are also shown, but qualitatively. Theories of chemical bonding

31 Theories of chemical bonding
Benzene The benzene structure has fascinated scientists for centuries. It’s bonding is particularly interesting. The C atom utilizes sp2 hybrid AO in the sigma bonds, and the remaining p AO overlap forming a ring of p bonds. Sigma s bonds are represented by lines, and the p orbitals for the p bonds are shown by balloon-shape blobs. Note the + and – signs of the p orbitals. Thus, we represent it by + + + + + + Theories of chemical bonding

33 Delocalized electrons in Benzene and Ozone
When p bonds are adjacent to each other or separated by on single C-C bonds, the p bonding electrons are delocalized. The delocalized electron path for benzene and ozone are shown here. These pictures represent p electron of the the structures formula contribute most to their structures. CO32– & have delocalized electrons O O O Theories of chemical bonding

34 Joy on structure of benzene – a story
Kathleen Londsdale ( ) came from a very poor family in Kildare who moved to Essex when she was five. She studied physics, math and chemistry at school and went to college in London when she was 16, where she did extremely well. She was offered a place in the research team of William Bragg, so starting her life's work on X-ray crystallography. In 1929 she showed, by her analysis of hexamethyl benzene, that the benzene ring was flat. Benzene has fascinated scientists, and its precise structure was a matter of controversy till then. In 1945 she was elected the first ever woman Fellow of the Royal Society. She was also created a Dame Commander of the Order of the Brittish Empire in 1956. Theories of chemical bonding

35 MO for Heteronuclear Diatomic Molecules
For heteronuclear diatomic molecules, the atomic orbitals are at different energy levels. Thus, the MO shifts are different from those of homonuclear diatomic molecules. The interactions of AO for MO for HF, LiF are similar, and explained in lectures.                                                       Theories of chemical bonding Chem120 students may ignore this slide.
