Molecular Geometry and Bonding Theories

2
The properties of a molecule depend on its shape and and the nature of its bonds. In this unit, we will discuss three models. (1) a model for the geometry of molecules -- valence-shell electron-pair repulsion (VSEPR) theory (2) a model about WHY molecules form bonds and WHY they have the shape they do -- valence-bond theory (3) a model of chemical bonding that deals with the electronic structure of molecules -- molecular orbital (MO) theory

CO 2 bond angles: the angles made by the lines joining the nuclei of a molecule’s atoms CH 4 CH 2 O carbon dioxidemethaneformaldehyde 180 o 120 o 109.5 o

VSEPR electron domain: a region in which at least two electrons are found -- they repel each other because… they are all (–) bonding domain: 2-to-6 e – that are shared by two atoms; they form a… covalent bond nonbonding domain: 2 e – that are located on a single atom; also called a… lone pair For ammonia, there are three bonding domains and one nonbonding domain. N–HH– H.. N H H H 4 e – domains NH 3 Domains arrange themselves so as to minimize their repulsions.

5
The electron-domain geometry is one of five basic arrangements of domains. -- it depends only on the total # of e – domains, NOT the kind of each domain The molecular geometry describes the orientation of the atoms in space. -- it depends on how many of each kind of e – domain N H H H..

(BrF 5 ), square planar (XeF 4 ) “atoms – axial”

To find the electron-domain geometry (EDG) and/or molecular geometry (MG), draw the Lewis structure. Multiple bonds count as a single domain. Predict the EDG and MG of each of the following.
