1
Qualitative MO-theory Why is the Hartree-Fock approximation important? HF gives quite reasonable estimates for the bond energies. HF is a starting point for many methods that try to improve on its results. HF is a prototype for various theories of the chemical bond.

2
Qualitative MO-theory (continued) bond energy: total energy (kJ/mol) experimental bond energy (kJ/mol) calculated bond energy (kJ/mol)

3
Qualitative MO-theory (continued) Rule II: Two orbitals that interact form two new orbitals. The one with the lower energy is called a bonding orbital, the one with higher energy an anti-bonding orbital. The stabilization of the bonding orbital is smaller than the destabilization of the anti-bonding orbital.

4
Qualitative MO-theory (continued) bonding level anti-bonding level This is relevant for repulsion. It holds only if overlap is not neglected.

5
Qualitative MO-theory (continued) Rule III: The (de)stabilization of the (anti-)bonding orbital is smaller when the difference of the energies of the orbitals, from which the bonding and anti-bonding orbital are formed, is larger.

6
Qualitative MO-theory (continued)

7
covalent bond ionic bond

8
Qualitative MO-theory (continued) Rule IV: The (de)stabilization of the (anti-)bonding orbital is smaller when the overlap of the orbitals, from which the bonding and anti-bonding orbital are formed, is smaller.

9
Qualitative MO-theory (continued) secular equation: assume: case 1:case 2:

10
Qualitative MO-theory (continued) Basis for Li 2 : Li 2 Li is large; no interaction between 1s and 2s (rule III). The 1s’s are compact; little overlap; neglegible (de)stabilization (rule IV). core orbitals valence orbitals

11
Qualitative MO-theory (continued) Basis for Be 2 : Be 2 Be Be 2 is not stable (rule II).

12
Qualitative MO-theory (continued) Rule I: Transform the basis functions to symmetry-adapted functions.

13
AB Qualitative MO-theory (continued) Basis for H 2 : A B A B

14
Qualitative MO-theory (continued) secular equation:

16
Qualitative MO-theory (continued) Non-diagonal matrix elements may vanish because of symmetry.
