1 Atomic Properties and the Period Table
Chemical elements: basic matters from which all material are made of. Atoms: natural entities of all matter. Atomic properties: properties of individual atoms. Periodic table of chemical elements: a tool for correlating and organizing chemical properties of elements. The modern periodic tables are results of quantum mechanics, and the study of chemistry has gone through a period highly theoretical to reach this state. Many atomic properties are related to the location of the element on the period table, and you need to know some of the rules and trends. Period Table

2 Mendeleev and Meyer Work
Both Mendeleev and Meyer tried to correlate chemical properties of elements with atomic weight, and they found that the properties reoccur every so often as atomic weight increases. For example, Na, K, Rb form compounds with oxygen and water in similar way. So do Mg, Ca, Ba; F, Cl, Br; etc. Mendeleev predicted some element not yet discovered then and elements were discovered as he predicted. This made him much more known than Meyer. Due to the fact that atomic weight has to be inverted in a few places on the old periodic table, the atomic number was assigned after the discoveries of X-ray and Moseley’s law: the frequencies of the characteristic X-rays of elements are proportional to the square of atomic number.

4 How many 3d electrons do Cu2+, Fe3+, etc ions have?
Transition Metal Ions Transition metals have n s2 (n – 1)d electrons. They lose n s electrons to form 2+ ions, and few lose (n – 1)d electrons to form ions of charge +2 and +3, or even +4 ions. What is the electronic configuration for Ti4+? ____ Some typical transition metal ions: Sc3+ Ti2+, 4+ V2+ Cr2+, 3+ Mn2+ Fe2+, 3+ Co2+ Ni2+ Cu+ , 2+ Zn2+ Mo Ag+ Cd2+ Au+, 3+ Hg2+ How many 3d electrons do Cu2+, Fe3+, etc ions have? Period Table

5 Sizes of Atoms and Ions Make sure you can explain these with some examples: Atomic volume: Cu has a density of 8920 kg m-3, find volume occupied by 1 atom.(63.5/ *NA) = _______ (reasoning) Atomic radii (take 25% of volume off and find the edge of the cube occupied per Cu atom) (illustrate during the lecture, but not giving here) Covalent radii: half of covalent bond lengths Ionic radii: not easy to give accurate value, but consistent set of cat ion and anion radii have been carefully estimated by repeated trials. Period Table

6 Screening and Penetration
The effects of other electrons in an atom on an electron is screening the positive charge. Since electrons are waves, they penetrate into space “occupied by other electrons”. No assumption can be made so that we can treat many-electron atoms as H-like atoms. Thus, we assume the charge experienced by an electron as Zeff, the effective atomic charge (or number). Thus, the energy of many electrons is En = – RH ; RH = – 13.6 eV, the Rydberg costant for H Energies of sub-shells are also affected by the quantum number l, as we have pointed out before, but quantum numbers l and m also affect sizes. Zeff2 n 2 Period Table

7 Atomic Radii in Groups and Period
Give reasons to explain the variation of atomic radii on the periodic table: Variation of atomic radii within a group: increase as Z increases (increase number of electrons and number of shells) Variation of atomic radii within a period: generally decrease as Z increases (penetration of electrons, screening and penetration) Variation of atomic radii of transition metals: almost constant, but decrease very slowly (d-electrons) Consult a periodic table and arrange the following lists by increasing atomic radius. Na, Li, K, Cs Br, Cl, I, F Be, Li, B, C, O, F, N Period Table

9 Trends of Ionic radii Ions usually have the same electronic configuration as an inert gas. He Li+ Be2+ N3– O2– F – Ne Na+ Mg2+ P3– S2– Cl – Ar K+ Ca Se2– Br – Kr Rb+ Sr Te2– I – Xe Cs+ Ba2+ Explain the trend in groups of color and chemical groups and give reasons for the trend. Chieh does this during the lecture, and you do this during your review. Skipping class is your choice. Period Table

10 From Atoms to Ions Consult a periodic table and arrange the following lists by increasing atomic radius. Na+, Li+, K+, Cs+, Xe, I- Br– , Cl –, I –, F – Be2+, Li+, B, C, O–2, F–, N Period Table

11 Trend in Ionization Energy
Ionization energy, I, is the energy required to convert a gaseous atom or ion into a gaseous ion, in eV per ion or in J or kJ per mole. For example, Mg (g)  Mg+ (g) + e–; I1 = 738 kJ / mol = 7.65 eV/atom Mg+ (g)  Mg2+ (g) + e–; I2 = 1451 kJ / mol = 15.0 eV/atom The effective atomic number Zeff, may be estimated using, Eeff = a positive value But ionization energy is not Eeff.

How does first ionization energy I1 vary in a group and in a period and why? Decreases and increases respectively Period Table

13 The In of Group n Define In. How do I1-to-n+1 change with elements in group number n? Period Table

14 Electron Affinity Electron affinity EA is the energy change when a gaseous atom or ion gains an electron (reverse of ionization), in eV per ion or in J or kJ per mole. For example, F (g) + e–  F – (g); EA = – 328 kJ / mol = – 3.4 eV/atom Li (g) + e–  Li– (g); EA = – 59.6 kJ / mol = – 0.62 eV/atom O (g) + e–  O– (g); EA1= – 141 kJ / mol = – 1.46 eV/atom O– (g) + e–  O2– (g); EA2 = kJ / mol = eV/atom The variation of EA is very irregular as Z increases. There is no particular trend in groups and in periods. Note the relationship of EAs and Is. Period Table

16 Magnetic Properties Materials can be divided into three types according to their magnetic properties. Be able to explain these terms: Diamagnetic material: substance slightly repelled by a magnetic field. There are no unpaired electrons. Paramagnetic material: substance slightly attracted by a magnetic field. There are some unpaired electrons, (single e– in an orbital) Ferromagnetic material: substances strongly attracted by magnetic field. Magnetic domains line up in these type, Fe, Fe2O3 etc. Which of these are paramagnetic, H, Na, Mg, Cl, Cl –, Ag, Fe Period Table
