2 Lewis Theory of Molecular Shape and Polarity
3 Structure Determines Properties! Properties of molecular substances depend on the structure of the molecule. The structure includes many factors, such as: Skeletal arrangement of the atoms Kind of bonding between the atoms Shape of the molecule
4 Molecular Geometry We can describe the shape of a molecule with terms that relate to geometric figures These geometric figures have characteristic corners (indicating the positions of atoms) The geometric figures also have characteristic angles that we call bond angles.
5 Lewis Theory of Molecular Shapes VSEPR Theory Electron groups repel each other. Predicting the shapes of molecules 1) The arrangement of the electron groups will be determined by trying to minimize repulsions between them. 2) The arrangement of atoms ( molecular shape ) surrounding a central atom will be determined by where the bonding electron groups are. 3) 1 and 2 are not necessarily the same
6 Electron Groups A Lewis structure predicts the number of valence electron pairs around a central atom(s). Each lone pair of electrons constitutes one electron group on a central atom. Each bond constitutes one electron group, regardless of whether it is single, double, or triple O S O There are three electron groups around S: one lone pair one single bond one double bond
7 Electron Group Geometry There are five basic arrangements of electron groups around a central atom. For molecules that exhibit resonance, it doesn t matter which resonance form you use the electron group geometry will be the same.
8 Electron Group Geometries
9 Molecular Shapes linear trigonal planar tetrahedral trigonal bipyramidal octahedral
10 Molecular Geometry 1) The actual geometry ( molecular geometry ) of a molecule may be different from the electron geometry. 2) When the electron groups are attached to atoms of different size, or when the bonding to one atom is different than the bonding to another, this will affect the molecular geometry around the central atom. 3) Lone pairs occupy space on the central atom, but are not seen as points on the molecular geometry.
11 Not Quite Perfect Geometry Because the bonds and atom sizes are not identical in formaldehyde, the observed angles are slightly different from ideal.
12 The Effect of Lone Pairs The bonding electrons are shared by two atoms, so some of the negative charge is removed from the central atom. The nonbonding electrons are localized on the central atom, so area of negative charge takes more space.
13 The Effect of Lone Pairs Lone pair groups occupy more space on the central atom than bonding electrons. Relative sizes of repulsive force interactions: Lone Pair Lone Pair > Lone Pair Bonding Pair > Bonding Pair Bonding Pair This affects the bond angles, making the bonding pair bonding pair angles smaller than expected.

17 Predicting the Shapes Around Central Atoms 1. Draw the Lewis structure 2. Determine the number of electron groups around the central atom 3. Classify each electron group as bonding or lone pair, and count each type 4. Determine the shape and bond angles

19 Polarity of Molecules
20 Polarity of Molecules For a molecule to be polar, it must have polar bonds, and have an unsymmetrical shape Polarity affects the intermolecular forces of attraction and therefore affects boiling points and solubilities Nonbonding pairs affect molecular polarity.
21 Molecular Polarity The H Cl bond is polar. The bonding electrons are pulled toward the Cl end of the molecule. The net result is a polar molecule.
22 Adding Dipole Moments to Determine Whether a Molecule is Polar
23 Some molecules are inherently polar because of the atoms which they contain and the arrangement of these atoms in space. H2O NH3 CH2O HCl δ δ+ A crude representation of a polar molecule
24 Other molecules are considered nonpolar CH4 BH3 C2H2 CO2 Nonpolarized electron clouds

27 Chemical Bonding Lewis Theory-VSEPR Valence Bond Theory Molecular Orbital Theory
28 Problems with Lewis Theory Lewis theory generally predicts trends in properties, but does not give good numerical predictions. Lewis theory gives good first approximations of the bond angles in molecules, but usually cannot be used to get actual bond angles. Lewis theory cannot write one correct structure for many molecules where resonance is important. Lewis theory often does not predict the correct magnetic behavior of molecules.
29 Valence Bond Theory Linus Pauling and others applied the principles of quantum mechanics to molecules. They reasoned that bonds between atoms would occur when the atomic orbitals interacted to make new bonds. The types of interactions depend on whether the orbitals align along the axis between the nuclei, or outside the axis.
30 Orbital Interaction As two atoms approached, the half-filled valence atomic orbitals on each atom would interact to form molecular orbitals. The molecular orbitals would be more stable than the separate atomic orbitals because they would contain paired electrons shared by both atoms.

33 Unhybridized C Orbitals Predict the Wrong Bonding & Geometry H 1s H 1s C 2s 2p
34 Valence Bond Theory Hybridization The number of partially filled or empty atomic orbitals does not always predict the number of bonds or orientation of bonds. Ex: C = 2s 2 2px 1 2py 1 2pz 0 would predict two or three bonds that are 90 apart. For carbon what is actually observed are four bonds that are apart. To adjust for these inconsistencies, it was postulated that the valence atomic orbitals hybridize before bonding took place.
35 Unhybridized C Orbitals Predict the Wrong Bonding & Geometry
36 Valence Bond Theory - Main Concepts Valence electrons of the atoms in a molecule reside in quantum-mechanical atomic orbitals. The orbitals can be the standard s, p, d, and f orbitals, or they may be hybrid combinations of these. A chemical bond results when two of these atomic orbitals interact and there is a total of two electrons in a new molecular orbital. The shape of the molecule is determined by the geometry of the interacting orbitals.
37 Hybridization Hybridizing is mixing different types of orbitals in the valence shell to make a new set of degenerate orbitals # of new orbitals-----> 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 orbital designation---> sp, sp 2, sp 3, sp 3 d, sp 3 d 2 The same type of atom can have different types of hybridization: C = sp, sp 2, sp 3 The particular kind of hybridization that occurs is the one that yields the lowest overall energy for the molecule.

49 Bonding with Valence Bond Theory Bonding takes place between atoms when their atomic or hybrid orbitals interact ( overlap ). To interact, the orbitals must either be aligned along the axis between the atoms, or The orbitals must be parallel to each other and perpendicular to the interatomic axis.
50 Types of Bonds Sigma (σ) bond - when the interacting atomic orbitals point along the axis connecting the two bonding nuclei Pi (π) bond - when the bonding atomic orbitals are parallel to each other and perpendicular to the axis connecting the two bonding nuclei The interaction between parallel orbitals is not as strong as between orbitals that point at each other; Therefore, σ bonds are stronger than π bonds.

84 Problems with Valence Bond Theory VB theory predicts properties better than Lewis theory bonding schemes, bond strengths, lengths, rigidity There are still properties it doesn t predict perfectly magnetic behavior of certain molecules strength of bonds VB theory presumes the electrons are localized in orbitals doesn t account for delocalization
85 Molecular Orbital Theory In MO theory, we apply Schrödinger s wave equation to the molecule to calculate a set of molecular orbitals. The equation solution is estimated. We start with good guesses as to what the orbitals should look like, then test the estimate until the energy is minimized The electrons belong to the whole molecule orbitals are delocalized
86 LCAO The simple guess starts with atomic orbitals of the atoms adding together to make molecular orbitals, the Linear Combination of Atomic Orbitals. The waves can combine either constructively or destructively.
87 Molecular Orbitals When wave functions combine constructively, the resulting molecular orbital has less energy than the original atomic orbitals it is called a Bonding Molecular Orbital σ, π most of the electron density between the nuclei Amplitudes of wave functions added
88 Molecular Orbitals When wave functions combine destructively, the resulting molecular orbital has more energy than the original atomic orbitals it is called an Antibonding Molecular Orbital σ*, π* most of the electron density outside the nuclei nodes between nuclei Amplitudes of wave functions subtracted.
