Valence Electrons Electrons in the outermost shell Determines the chemical properties of atoms Reactions involve loss, gain, or rearrangement of electrons Core Electrons Electrons in the inner shells Not involved in chemical reactions
Main group elements: Valence electrons = s and p electrons in outermost shell Valence electrons are equal to the group number Transition elements: Valence electrons = ns and (n-1)d electrons Valence electrons are equal to the group number Valence electrons
Example Write the spdf, noble gas, and electron orbital notation for carbon. Which are the valence electrons? Which are the core electrons?
Lewis Electron Dot Symbols Represents valence shell electrons Arrange electrons in pairs around the atom Maximum of eight electrons Octet rule
Example Write the Lewis Dot Symbols for: Nitrogen Phosphorous
Bonds 1. Atoms achieve noble gas configuration 1. Quest for complete octet 2. Products tend to have a lower chemical potential than the reactants 3. The bond that forms has the lowest potential energy (greatest stability)
Bonding Quest for complete octet Covalent bonds: Molecular compounds Sharing of valence electrons Cl 2
Ionic bond Ionic compounds Valence electrons are transferred from one atom to another Metal + non-metal NaCl Bonding
