QUESTION ….. LET’S TRY IT FOR H 2 O Can we predict the shapes of molecules simply by combining the atomic orbitals available on each atom? HO H :..

O y x z.... 2s 2p OXYGENORBITALS oxygen = [He]2s 2 2p 4 unpaired
O y x z H... H... Combining atomic orbitals to form H 2 O. Incorrectly predicts a 90 o angle. 2s 2p 1s oxygen = [He]2s 2 2p 4 hydrogen = 1s 1
H H O 105 o The actual H-O-H angle in water (measured by electron diffraction) is 105 o EXPERIMENTAL RESULT This is not very good agreement with the atomic orbital model!
VSEPR Theory Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Based on the simple idea that groups of electrons repel each other Predicts molecular shapes quite well
A better result is predicted by VSEPR theory consider the completed valence shell to be a spherical volume around the nucleus try to minimize repulsions by maximizing the distance between all pairs of electrons electron pairs (4 pair) repel each other in the final solution, they should all be equidistant valence shell nucleus TETRAHEDRAL

Orbitals The region of space around an atom in which an electron is likely to be found is an orbital. The shape and size of the orbital are determined by a mathematical equation called a wave function.
Orbitals When atoms combine to form molecules, they do so by combining the wave functions for the individual atomic orbitals. We say that the orbitals “overlap.” The region of space defined by this combination of orbitals is the molecular orbital.
Sigma Bonds Head-on overlap of atomic orbitals Electron density is a symmetrical cylinder around the bond axis Atomic orbital combinations that give bonds:
Pi Bonds Side-on overlap of atomic orbitals Electron density is above and below a nodal plane on the internuclear axis Atomic orbital combinations that give bonds:
HYBRIDIZATION HOW ARE THE OBSERVED BOND ANGLES ACHIEVED? “Vision is the art of seeing things invisible.” Jonathan Swift
atomic orbitals hybrid atomic orbitals molecular orbitals HYPOTHETICAL BONDING PROCESS 2s 2px,2py,2pz sp,sp 2py,2pz , , ,n These orbitals are for the atom - we can’t expect that they are suitable for the molecule. WHY DOESN’T THE ATOMIC ORBITAL APPROACH WORK ? During bonding …. new orbitals form that are more suitable for making bonds. After bonding (overlap) we get a totally new solution for the new molecule. overlap NOTE. Formally LCAO theory and Molecular Orbital theory are two completely different approaches. You do not need to use hybid orbitals to derive the molecular orbitals, combinations of any type of function will do. Nevertheless, the abstraction presented above is quite useful, as we will see quite soon. LCAO

sp 3 SP 3 HYBRID ORBITAL The hybrid orbital has more density in the bonding lobe than a p orbital and forms stronger bonds. ( cross section ) The shape shown is calculated from quantum theory. To avoid confusion the back lobe is omitted from the cartoons, already shown, and the front lobe is elongated to show its direction. omitted Courtesy of Professor George Gerhold … and its cartoon

Most pi bonds have a bond energy of 50 - 60 Kcal / mole ( 210 - 250 Kj / mole ) MOLECULES WITH PI BONDS When the total energy of a multiple bond is given, you must subtract the energy of the pi bonds to obtain the sigma bond energy. C=C 145 Kcal/mole C-C = 95 Kcal/mole ( 145 - 50 = 95 ) both bonds thus: TOTAL BOND ENERGY
Non Bonded Electrons (unshared pairs) do not significantly change their energy in going from an atom to a bonded molecule MOLECULES WITH UNSHARED PAIRS
