1 Bonding

2 A force that holds atoms together. Why? We will look at it in terms of energy. Bond energy the energy required to break a bond. Why are compounds formed? Because it gives the system the lowest energy (greater stability).

3 An atom with a low ionization energy reacts with an atom with high electron affinity. The electron moves. Opposite charges hold the atoms together (called electrostatic attraction).

4 E= (2.31 x J·nm)(Q 1 Q 2 ) r Q is the charge. r is the distance between the atom centers. If charges are opposite, E is negative Exothermic (lower product energy = increased stability). Same charge, positive E, requires energy to bring them together (decreased stability).

5 The electrons in each atom are attracted to the nucleus of the other…however, there are opposing forces involved. The electrons repel each other, The nuclei repel each other. The atoms approach each other and reach a distance with the lowest possible energy. The distance between is the bond length.

12 Electrons are shared by atoms. Atoms with equal attraction for e - form nonpolar covalent bonds (same E.N. values) Atoms with different E.N. values form polar covalent bonds. The electrons are not shared evenly. One end is slightly positive, the other negative. Indicated using lowercase delta (

13 H - F + -




17 The ability of an electron to attract shared electrons to itself. Pauling method of calculating the value Imaginary molecule HX Expected H-X energy = H-H energy + X-X energy 2 = (H-X) actual - (H-X) expected If H and X have identical EN values then is zero! Great, but simply know the trend.

18 is known for almost every element Gives us relative electronegativities of all elements. Tends to increase left to right. Decreases as you go down a group. Noble gases arent discussed (shhh!) Difference in electronegativity between atoms tells us how polar.

19 Electronegativity difference Bond Type Zero Intermediate Large Covalent Polar Covalent Ionic Covalent Character decreases Ionic Character increases

20 A molecule with a center of negative charge and a center of positive charge is dipolar (two poles), Or…has a dipole moment. Center of charge doesnt have to be on an atom. The molecule will line up in the presence of an electric field.

21 H - F + -

22 Any two atom molecule with a polar bond. With three or more atoms there are two considerations. There must be a polar bond. Geometry cant cancel it out.

23 Three shapes may cancel them out. Linear

24 Three shapes may cancel them out. Planar triangles(trigonal planar) 120º

25 Three shapes may cancel them out. Tetrahedral

26 Others dont cancel Bent

27 Others dont cancel Trigonal Pyramidal

28 This shape wont cancel them out. Linear H Br Be Net Dipole Moment

29 Atoms tend to react to form noble gas configuration. Metals lose electrons to form cations Nonmetals can share electrons in covalent bonds. Or they can gain electrons to form anions.

30 We mean the solid crystal. Ions align themselves to maximize attractions between opposite charges, and to minimize repulsion between like ions. Can stabilize ions that would be unstable as a gas. React to achieve noble gas configuration

31 Ion size increases down a group. Cations are smaller than the atoms they came from. Anions are larger. across a row they get smaller, and then suddenly larger. First half are cations. Second half are anions.

32 Across the period nuclear charge increases so they get smaller. Energy level changes between anions and cations. Li +1 Be +2 B +3 C +4 N -3 O -2 F -1

33 Iso - same Iso electronic ions have the same # of electrons Al +3 Mg +2 Na +1 Ne F -1 O -2 and N -3 All have 10 electrons. All have the configuration 1s 2 2s 2 2p 6

34 Positive ions have more protons so they are smaller. Al +3 Mg +2 Na +1 Ne F -1 O -2 N -3

35 Lattice energy - the energy associated with making a solid ionic compound from its gaseous ions. M + (g) + X - (g) MX(s) This is the energy that pays for making ionic compounds. Energy is a state function so we can get from reactants to products in a round about way.

36 First, sublime Na Na (s) Na (g) H=109 kJ/mol Ionize Na(g) Na (g) Na + (g) +e - H = 495 kJ/mol Break F-F Bond ½F 2 (g) F (g) H = 77 kJ/mol Add electron to F F (g) + e - F - (g) H= -328 kJ/mol Lattice energy …allow the ions to bond Na (s) + ½F 2 (g) NaF (s) H = -928 kJ/mol

37 Now…add it all up to determine the overall energy associated with the process kJ/mol involved in the formation of sodium fluoride. Very exothermic!

38 Lattice Energy = k(Q 1 Q 2 ) r k is a constant that depends on the structure of the crystal. Qs are ion charges. r is internuclear distance. Lattice energy is greater with more highly charged ions (larger numerator). Lattice energy is greater when the distance between ions is smaller (smaller denominator).

39 This bigger lattice energy pays for the extra ionization energy. Also pays for unfavorable electron affinity.


41 There are probably no totally ionic bonds between individual atoms. You can calculate % ionic character, but we will not in this course! Compare measured dipole of X-Y bonds to the calculated dipole of X + Y - if it were a completely ionic case. % dipole = Measured X-Y x 100 Calculated X + Y - In the gas phase.

42 % Ionic Character Electronegativity difference 25% 50% 75%

43 If bonds cant be ionic, what are ionic compounds? And what about polyatomic ions? An ionic compound will be defined as any substance that conducts electricity when melted. Also use the generic term salt and expect these substances to ionize in aqueous solutions!

44 The forces that cause a group of atoms to behave as a unit. Why? Due to the tendency of atoms to achieve the lowest energy state. It takes 1652 kJ to dissociate a mole of CH 4 into its ions. Since each hydrogen is bonded to the carbon, we get the average energy for one H-C bond to break = 413 kJ/mol

45 CH 3 Cl has 3 C-H, and 1 C - Cl the C-Cl bond is 339 kJ/mol Recall, the bond is a human invention. It is a method of explaining the energy change associated with forming molecules. Bonds dont exist in nature, but are useful for descriptive purposes (our feeble little minds). We have a model of a bond.

46 Explains how nature operates. Derived from observations. It simplifies the and categorizes the information. A model must be sensible, but it has limitations.

47 A human invention, not a blown up picture of nature. Models can be wrong, because they are based on speculations and over- simplification. Models become more complicated with age…usually following Nobel prizes! You must understand the assumptions in the model, and look for weaknesses. We learn more when the model is wrong than when it is right (welcome to science)!

48 We made some simplifications in describing the bond energy of CH 4 Each C-H bond has a different energy. CH 4 CH 3 + H H = 435 kJ/mol CH 3 CH 2 + H H = 453 kJ/mol CH 2 CH + H H = 425 kJ/mol CH C + H H = 339 kJ/mol Each bond is sensitive to its environment.

49 A table of the averages of different types of bonds is found on pg. 351 Single bond: one pair of electrons is shared. Double bond: two pair of electrons are shared. Triple bond: three pair of electrons are shared. More bonds = shorter bond length.

50 We can find H for a reaction. It takes energy to break bonds, and end up with atoms (endothermic change = + ). We get energy when we use atoms to form bonds (exothermic = - ). If we add up the energy it took to break the bonds, and subtract the energy we get from forming the bonds we get the H. Recall, energy and enthalpy are state functions.

51 2 CH 2 = CHCH 3 + 2NH 3 O2O2 + 2 CH 2 = CHC N + 6 H 2 O C-H 413 kJ/mol C=C 614kJ/mol N-H 391 kJ/mol O-H 467 kJ/mol O=O 495 kJ/mol C N 891 kJ/mol C-C 347 kJ/mol

52 This is one of the only equations this year where we have the following order: Reactants (bonds broken) minus Products (bonds formed) ΔH = ΣD(bonds broken) – ΣD(bonds formed) energy requiringenergy releasing

53 Simple model, easily applied. A molecule is composed of atoms that are bound together by sharing pairs of electrons ( using the atomic orbitals of the bound atoms). Consists of Three Parts: 1) Valence electrons using Lewis structures 2) Prediction of geometry using VSEPR 3) Description of the types of orbitals (Chapt 9)

54 Shows how the valence electrons are arranged. One dot for each valence electron. A stable compound has all its atoms with a noble gas configuration. Hydrogen follows the duet rule. The rest (mostly) follow the octet rule. Bonding pair is the one between the element symbols. Non-bonding pair is localized on a single element symbol.

55 Sum the valence electrons. Use a pair of e - to form a bond between each pair of atoms. Arrange the rest to fulfill the octet rule (except for H and other exceptions). eg. H 2 O A line can be used instead of a pair of dots. If you run out of electrons prior to achieving an octet…multiple bonds are possible.

56 BH 3 Be and B often do not achieve octet Have less than an octet, for electron deficient molecules. SF 6 Third row and larger elements can exceed the octet…why? Take a look at the Orbital Filling Diagram… Use 3d orbitals? I 3 -

57 When we must exceed the octet, extra electrons go on central atom…if possible! Fill from the outside elements back to the inside central atom of the molecule. ClF 3 XeO 3 ICl 4 - BeCl 2

58 Sometimes there is more than one valid Lewis structure for a molecule or ion. NO 3 - Use double arrows to indicate it is the average of the structures. It doesnt switch between them. eg. NO 2 - Localized electron model is based on pairs of electrons, doesnt deal with odd numbers.

59 For molecules and polyatomic ions that exceed the octet…often there are several different structures possible Use Formal Charges on atoms to help decide which. Trying to use the oxidation numbers to put charges on atoms in molecules doesnt work.

60 The formal charge is the difference between the number of valence electrons (Ve - ) on the free atom and the number of Ve - assigned to the atom in the molecule (p. 364). FC = (# Ve - on free atom) – (# of Ve - assigned to the atom in the molecule) Ve - assigned = (Ve - on atom) + ½ (number of shared e - )

61 We count half the electrons in each bond as belonging to the atom. Molecules try to achieve as low a formal charge as possible. Negative formal charges should be on electronegative elements.

62 N 2 O XeO 3 SO 2 Cl 2

63 Lewis structures tell us how the atoms are connected to each other. They dont tell us anything about shape. The shape of a molecule can greatly affect its properties. Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory allows us to predict geometry

64 Molecules take a shape that puts electron pairs as far away from each other as possible. Have to draw the Lewis structure to determine electron pairs. Bonding pair vs. nonbonding lone pair Lone pairs occupy more space. Multiple bonds are assumed to occupy the same space as a single bond or count as one pair.

65 The number of pairs determines bond angles underlying structure The number of atoms determines actual shape

70 Examine the molecule in parts. Can predict the geometry of each angle. Build it piece by piece. Example:

71 Does an outstanding job for such a simple model. Predictions are almost always accurate. Like all simple models, it has exceptions.
