During chemical BONDING it is valence electrons which move amongst different atoms. In order to keep track of the valence of electrons for each atom and how they may be shared in BONDING, we use the Lewis Dot Structure for Atoms and molecules. In this approach, we represent valence electrons as dots around the element symbol. For example, oxygen has 6 valence electrons, so we write the symbol O for oxygen and surround it with 6 dots: unpaired electrons are represented as single dots, and paired electrons as double dots. Placement of single or double dots around symbol is not critical. Alternatively, we can represent paired electrons as line. That is, we replace double dots as shown below: let's consider other examples. Sodium atom has 11 electrons, but only one is valence electron. The other 10 are inside close shell with Neon electron configuration. Thus, we draw the Lewis Structure for Sodium atom as symbol Na with a single dot: chlorine atom has 17 electrons, but only 7 of these are valence electrons. Thus, we draw the Lewis Structure as: in Ionic Bonds valence electrons are completely transfer. Thus, we write Lewis Structure for NaCl as: as you can see, Chlorine is now surrounded by 8 electrons in N = 3 shell and Sodium has lost its one valence electron in N = 3 shell. Of course, sodium, is still surrounded by 8 electrons of N = 2 shell, but we do not show electrons in inner close shells. For period 2 elements, where all valence electrons of an atom are in s and p orbitals, we find that the Lewis Dot Structure of molecules will often follow the Octet Rule: Octet Rule - Atoms tend to gain, lose, or share electrons until they are surrounded by eight electrons. Using Lewis Dot structures and Octet Rule, we can predict and represent the electronic structure of covalently bonded molecules. For example, when two Chlorine atoms, each with 7 valence electrons, come together to form a diatomic Chlorine molecule, Lewis Structure shows that there will be sharing of two electrons between two Chlorine atoms, which allows both Chlorine to be surrounded by 8 electrons. Of course, hydrogen is period 1 element, with only 1s Orbital, so it has a maximum of two electrons allowed in its valence shell. When two hydrogen atoms come together into a diatomic H 2 molecule, the Lewis Structure shows that there will be sharing of two electrons between two hydrogen, allowing both hydrogen to be surrounded by a closed N = 1 shell of 2 electrons: We can represent the electronic structure and reaction of hydrogen and Chlorine Atoms to form HCl with Lewis structures: for diatomic oxygen, Lewis Dot Structure predict double bond. While the Lewis diagram correctly predicts that there is a double bond between o atoms, it incorrectly predicts that all valence electrons are pair.

Lewis Symbols

We use Lewis Symbols to describe valence electron configurations of atoms and monatomic Ions. Lewis Symbols consist of elemental symbols surrounded by one Dot For Each Of Its valence Electrons: Figure 1 Shows Lewis Symbols For Elements Of third period Of Periodic Table. Lewis Symbols can also be used to illustrate formation of cations from atoms, As shown here for Sodium and Calcium: Likewise, they can be used to show formation of anions from atoms, As shown below for Chlorine and Sulfur: Figure 2 demonstrates use of Lewis Symbols To Show Transfer Of Electrons during formation Of IONIC COMPOUNDS.

Glossary

In almost all cases, chemical bonds are formed by interactions of valence electrons in atoms. To facilitate our understanding of how valence electrons interact, simple way of representing those valence electrons would be useful. The Lewis Electron Dot Diagram is a representation of valence electrons of atoms that use dots around the symbol of element.S number of dots equals the number of valence electrons in an Atom. These dots are arranged to right and left and above and below the Symbol, with NO more than two dots on side. For EXAMPLE, Lewis Electron Dot Diagram For Calcium is simply Figure 1 Shows Lewis Symbols For Elements Of third period of the Periodic Table.

Fullerene Chemistry

Thus far in this chapter, we have discussed various types of bonds that form between atoms and / or ions. In all cases, these bonds involve sharing or transfer of valence shell electrons between atoms. In this section, we will explore typical methods for depicting valence shell electrons and chemical bonds, namely Lewis symbols and Lewis structures. Dalton knew of the experiments of French chemist Joseph Proust, who demonstrated that all samples of pure compound contain same elements in same proportion by mass. This statement is known as the law of Definite Proportions or law of constant composition. The suggestion that the numbers of atoms of elements in give compound always exist in the same ratio is consistent with these observations. For example, when different samples of isooctane are analyze, they are found to have a carbon - to - hydrogen mass ratio of 5. 33: 1, as show In. It is worth noting that although all samples of a particular compound have the same mass ratio, converse is not true in general. That is, samples that have the same mass ratio are not necessarily the same substance. For example, there are many compounds other than isooctane that also have a carbon - to - hydrogen mass ratio of 5. 33: 1. 00. Dalton also uses data from Proust, as well as results from his own experiments, to formulate another interesting law. The Law of Multiple Proportions states that when two elements react to form more than one compound, fixed mass of one element will react with masses of other elements in a ratio of small, whole numbers. For example, copper and chlorine can form green, crystalline solids with a mass ratio of 0. 558 g chlorine to 1 g copper, as well as brown crystalline solid with a mass ratio of 1. 116 g chlorine to 1 g copper. These ratios by themselves may not seem particularly interesting or informative; However, if we take the ratio of these ratios, we obtain a useful and possibly surprising result: small, whole - number ratio. {matheq}\frac{\frac{1.116 \text{ g Cl}}{1 \text{ g Cu}}}{\frac{0.558 \text{ g Cl}}{1 \text{ g Cu}}} = \frac{2}{1}{endmatheq} this can be explained by Atomic Theory if the copper - to - chlorine ratio in the brown compound is 1 copper atom to 2 chlorine atoms, and the ratio in the green compound is 1 copper atom to 1 chlorine atom. The ratio of chlorine atoms is therefore 2 to 1. The earliest recorded discussion of the basic structure of matter came from ancient Greek philosophers, scientists of their day. In the fifth century BC, Leucippus and Democritus argued that all matter was composed of small, finite particles that they called atomos, term derived from the Greek word for indivisible. They think of atoms as moving particles that differ in shape and size, and which could join together. Later, Aristotle and others came to the conclusion that matter consists of various combinations of four elementsfire, Earth, air, and water could be infinitely divide. Interestingly, these philosophers think about atoms and elements as philosophical concepts, but apparently never consider performing experiments to test their ideas.


Exceptions to the Octet Rule

Other halogen molecules form bonds like those in chlorine molecule: one single bond between atoms and three lone pairs of electrons per atom. This allows each halogen atom to have a noble gas electron configuration. The tendency of main group atoms to form enough bonds to obtain eight valence electrons is known as the octet rule. The number of bonds that atom can form can often be predicted from the number of electrons needed to reach octet; this is especially true of nonmetals of second period of the periodic table. For example, each atom of group 14 elements has four electrons in its outermost shell and therefore requires four more electrons to reach the octet. These four electrons can be gained by forming four covalent bonds, as illustrated here for carbon in CCl 4 and silicon in SiH 4. Because hydrogen only needs two electrons to fill its valence shell, it is an exception to the octet rule. Transition elements and inner transition elements also do not follow the octet rule: group 15 elements such as nitrogen have five valence electrons in atomic Lewis symbol: one lone pair and three unpaired electrons. To obtain octet, these atoms form three covalent bonds, as in NH 3. Oxygen and other atoms in group 16 obtain octets by forming two covalent bonds:


Lewis Structures

We also use Lewis symbols to indicate the formation of covalent bonds, which are shown in Lewis structures, drawings that describe bonding in molecules and polyatomic ions. For example, when two chlorine atoms form chlorine molecule, they share one pair of electrons: Lewis structure indicates that each Cl atom has three pairs OF electrons that are not used in bonding and one share pair of electrons. Dash is sometimes used to indicate shared pair of electrons: single shared pair of electrons is called single bond. Each Cl atom interacts with eight valence electrons: six in lone pairs and two in single bond.
