1 Chapter 9 Orbitals and Covalent Bond
2 Molecular Orbitals n The overlap of atomic orbitals from separate atoms makes molecular orbitals n Each molecular orbital has room for two electrons n Two types of MO –Sigma ( ) between atoms –Pi ( ) above and below atoms
3 Sigma bonding orbitals n From s orbitals on separate atoms ++ s orbital +++ Sigma bonding molecular orbital
4 Sigma bonding orbitals n From p orbitals on separate atoms p orbital Sigma bonding molecular orbital
5 Pi bonding orbitals n p orbitals on separate atoms Pi bonding molecular orbital
6 Sigma and pi bonds n All single bonds are sigma bonds n A double bond is one sigma and one pi bond n A triple bond is one sigma and two pi bonds.
7 Atomic Orbitals Dont Work n to explain molecular geometry. n In methane, CH 4, the shape is tetrahedral. n The valence electrons of carbon should be two in s, and two in p. n the p orbitals would have to be at right angles. n The atomic orbitals change when making a molecule
8 Hybridization n We blend the s and p orbitals of the valence electrons and end up with the tetrahedral geometry. n We combine one s orbital and 3 p orbitals. n sp 3 hybridization has tetrahedral geometry.

12 How we get to hybridization n We know the geometry from experiment. n We know the orbitals of the atom n hybridizing atomic orbitals can explain the geometry. n So if the geometry requires a tetrahedral shape, it is sp 3 hybridized n This includes bent and trigonal pyramidal molecules because one of the sp 3 lobes holds the lone pair.
13 sp 2 hybridization nC2H4nC2H4nC2H4nC2H4 n Double bond acts as one pair. n trigonal planar n Have to end up with three blended orbitals. n Use one s and two p orbitals to make sp 2 orbitals. n Leaves one p orbital perpendicular.

17 Where is the P orbital? n Perpendicular The overlap of orbitals makes a sigma bond ( bond) The overlap of orbitals makes a sigma bond ( bond)
18 Two types of Bonds n Sigma bonds from overlap of orbitals. n Between the atoms. Pi bond ( bond) above and below atoms Pi bond ( bond) above and below atoms n Between adjacent p orbitals. n The two bonds of a double bond.

20 sp 2 hybridization n When three things come off atom. n trigonal planar n 120º One bond, lp =3 One bond, lp =3
21 What about two n When two things come off. n One s and one p hybridize. n linear
22 sp hybridization n End up with two lobes 180º apart. n p orbitals are at right angles Makes room for two bonds and two sigma bonds. Makes room for two bonds and two sigma bonds. n A triple bond or two double bonds.

27 Breaking the octet n PCl 5 n The model predicts that we must use the d orbitals. n dsp 3 hybridization n There is some controversy about how involved the d orbitals are.
28 dsp 3 n Trigonal bipyrimidal can only bond. can only bond. cant bond. cant bond. n basic shape for five things.
29 PCl 5 Cant tell the hybridization of Cl Assume sp 3 to minimize repulsion of electron pairs.
30 d 2 sp 3 n gets us to six things around n Octahedral n Only σ bond
31 Molecular Orbital Model n Localized Model we have learned explains much about bonding. n It doesnt deal well with the ideal of resonance, unpaired electrons, and bond energy. n The MO model is a parallel of the atomic orbital, using quantum mechanics. n Each MO can hold two electrons with opposite spins n Square of wave function tells probability
32 What do you get? n Solve the equations for H 2 n H A H B n get two orbitals n MO 2 = 1s A - 1s B n MO 1 = 1s A + 1s B
33 The Molecular Orbital Model The molecular orbitals are centered on a line through the nuclei The molecular orbitals are centered on a line through the nuclei –MO 1 the greatest probability is between the nuclei –MO 2 it is on either side of the nuclei –this shape is called a sigma molecular orbital
34 The Molecular Orbital Model In the molecule only the molecular orbitals exist, the atomic orbitals are gone In the molecule only the molecular orbitals exist, the atomic orbitals are gone MO 1 is lower in energy than the 1s orbitals they came from. MO 1 is lower in energy than the 1s orbitals they came from. –This favors molecule formation –Called an bonding orbital MO 2 is higher in energy MO 2 is higher in energy –This goes against bonding –antibonding orbital
35 The Molecular Orbital Model Energy MO 2 MO 1 s s H2H2
36 The Molecular Orbital Model We use labels to indicate shapes, and whether the MOs are bonding or antibonding. We use labels to indicate shapes, and whether the MOs are bonding or antibonding. –MO 1 = 1s –MO 2 = 1s * (* indicates antibonding) Can write them the same way as atomic orbitals Can write them the same way as atomic orbitals –H 2 = 1s 2
37 The Molecular Orbital Model Each MO can hold two electrons, but they must have opposite spins Each MO can hold two electrons, but they must have opposite spins Orbitals are conserved. Orbitals are conserved. The number of molecular orbitals must equal the number atomic orbitals that are used to make them. The number of molecular orbitals must equal the number atomic orbitals that are used to make them.

39 Bond Order n The difference between the number of bonding electrons and the number of antibonding electrons divided by two
40 Only outer orbitals bond n The 1s orbital is much smaller than the 2s orbital n When only the 2s orbitals are involved in bonding Dont use the 1s or 1s * for Li 2 Dont use the 1s or 1s * for Li 2 Li 2 = ( 2s ) 2 Li 2 = ( 2s ) 2 n In order to participate in bonds the orbitals must overlap in space.
41 Bonding in Homonuclear Diatomic Molecules n Need to use Homonuclear so that we know the relative energies. n Li 2 - ( 2s ) 2 ( 2s *) 1 ( 2s ) 2 ( 2s *) 1 n Be 2 ( 2s ) 2 ( 2s *) 2 ( 2s ) 2 ( 2s *) 2 n What about the p orbitals? How do they form orbitals? n Remember that orbitals must be conserved.

47 Magnetism n Magnetism has to do with electrons. n Remember that spin is how an electron reacts to a magnetic field n Paramagnetism attracted by a magnet. –associated with unpaired electrons. n Diamagnetism repelled by a magnet. –associated with paired electrons. n B 2 is paramagnetic.
48 Magnetism The energies of of the 2p and the 2p are reversed by p and s interacting The energies of of the 2p and the 2p are reversed by p and s interacting The 2s and the 2s * are no longer equally spaced. The 2s and the 2s * are no longer equally spaced. n Heres what it looks like.
51 Patterns n As bond order increases, bond energy increases. n As bond order increases, bond length decreases. n Supports basis of MO model. n There is not a direct correlation of bond order to bond energy. n O 2 is known to be paramagnetic. n Movie. Movie

56 You try n NO + n CN - n What if they come from completely different orbitals and energy? n HF n Simplify first by assuming that F only uses one if its 2p orbitals. n F holds onto its electrons, so they have low energy
57 1s 2p
58 Consequences n Paramagnetic n Since 2p is lower in energy, favored by electrons. n Electrons spend time closer to fluorine. n Compatible with polarity and electronegativity.
59 Names n sp orbitals are called the Localized electron model and olecular orbital model and olecular orbital model n Localized is good for geometry, doesnt deal well with resonance. seeing bonds as localized works well seeing bonds as localized works well It is the bonds in the resonance structures that can move.
