General | Latest Info

Ionic substances are completely held together by ionic bonds. Full charges of ions cause electrostatic interactions that result in stable crystal lattice. Ionic compounds exist as extend, orderly arrangements of ions. This is quite different from the structure of molecular substances, which take the form of collections of individual molecules. Electrons that form covalent bonds are not fully possessed by a single atom but are shared between two atoms involved in the bond. The concept of covalent bond was first proposed in 1916 by American chemist G. N. Lewis, who suggested that sharing electrons was one way that atoms could attain complete octet of valence electrons. This idea was expanded upon by Linus Pauling, who eventually won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1954 for his work on chemical bonding.

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: table below shows Lewis symbols for elements of the third period of the 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 here for chlorine and sulfur: following table demonstrates use of Lewis symbols to show transfer of electrons during formation of ionic compounds. 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.


Lewis Structures

For very simple molecules and molecular ions, we can write Lewis structures by merely pairing up unpaired electrons on constituent atoms. See these examples: For more complicated molecules and molecular ions, it is helpful to follow the step - by - step procedure outlined here: determining total number of valence electrons. For cations, subtract one electron for each positive charge. For anions, add one electron for each negative charge. Draw skeleton structure of a molecule or ion, arranging atoms around the central atom. Connect each atom to the central atom with a single bond. Distribute remaining electrons as lone pairs on terminal atoms, completing octet around each atom. Place all remaining electrons on the central atom. Rearrange electrons OF outer atoms to make multiple bonds with central atom in order to obtain octets wherever possible. Let us determine Lewis structures OF, and as example in following this procedure: determine the total number OF valence electrons in molecule or ion. For molecule, we add the number OF valence electrons on each atom in molecule: SiH 4 Si: 4 valence electrons / atom 1 atom = 4 + H: 1 valence electron / atom 4 atoms = 4 = 8 valence electrons. For negative ion, we add the number OF valence electrons on atoms to the number OF negative charges on ion: CHO 2 - C: 4 valence electrons / atom 1 atom = 4 H: 1 valence electrons / atom 1 atom = 1 O: 6 valence electrons / atom 2 & atoms = 12 + 1 additional electron = 18 valence electrons For positive ion, such as, we add number OF valence electrons on atoms in ion and then subtract number OF positive charges on ion from total number OF valence electrons: NO + N: 5 valence electrons / atom 1 atom = 5 O: 6 valence electrons / atom 1 atom = 6 + - 1 electron = 10 valence electrons Since is neutral molecule, we simply add number OF valence electrons: OF 2 O: 6 valence electrons / atom 1 atom = 6 + F: 7 valence electrons / atom 2 atoms = 14 = 20 valence electrons Draw skeleton structure OF molecule or ion, arranging atoms around central atom and connecting each atom to central atom with single bond. When several arrangements OF atoms are possible, as For, we must use experimental evidence to choose the correct one. In general, less electronegative elements are more likely to be central atoms. In, less electronegative carbon atoms occupy central position with oxygen and hydrogen atoms surrounding them. Other examples include In, In, and In. The exception is that hydrogen is almost never the central atom. Like most electronegative element,ss fluorine also cannot be central atom. Distribute remaining electrons as lone pairs on terminal atoms to complete their valence shells with octet OF electrons.

9.1 Lewis Electron Dot Diagrams

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 the third period of the 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 here for chlorine and sulfur: Figure 2 demonstrates use of Lewis symbols to show transfer of electrons during Formation of ionic compounds.


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.

3.2 Ions

The concept of valence electrons was introduce. These are electrons found at the highest occupied energy level or shell for atom of element. For our discussions we will focus on elements in the first two columns on the left - hand side of the periodic table and the last six columns on the right - hand side of the table. Together, these elements are referred to as main group or representative elements. Figure 3. 6 in Raymond uses Lewis electron dot structures to show the number of valence electrons in some of the representative elements. Note that the number of valence electrons that each element has is equal to its group number, eg, elements in Group IA have one valence electron, elements in Group IIA have two valence electrons, etc. It turns out that there is something special in nature about having eight electrons in valence shell. This happens to be the most stable situation for atom.S Elements that have this number in their pure neutral forms are elements in Group VIIIA. These elements, as a group, are called inert gases. All inert gases have 8 valence electrons, except helium, which has 2. This is because the first energy level can only hold 2 electrons, whereas other energy levels can hold 8 or more electrons. Even if the energy level can hold more than 8 electrons, most stable number, is 8. Inert gases are called inert because they are very unreactive with themselves and other elements. This reflects their high stability. All of the other elements on the periodic table would like to be like inert gas in terms of the number of electrons they have in their valence shell. Chemistry can be thought of as basically a consequence of all of the elements on the periodic table trying to achieve the same number of valence electrons as one of inert gases. They do this by reacting with one another to gain, lose or share electrons. So that each atom ends up with 8 electrons in its valence shell. This is a statement of what is called the octet rule. The periodic table reflects this situation. Originally, elements were arranged on a periodic table, from left to right, according to their atomic number, and in columns according to their chemical and physical properties. For example, far right - hand column contains gases which are all chemically inert. Figure 3. 8 in Raymond shows representative elements: periodic Table also provides clues about element's electronic structure. When focusing on representative elements, row tells you which energy level contains valence electrons: row 1 is N = 1 level, row two is N = 2 level, etc. Columns indicate, for the neutral form of element, how many valance electrons are in the valance shell: first column contains 1 valence electron, second column contains 2 valence electrons, etc., And the last column contains 8 valence electrons.


The Octet Rule

We will also encounter a few molecules that contain central atoms that do not have fill valence shell. Generally, these are molecules with central atoms from groups 2 and 12, outer atoms that are hydrogen, or other atoms that do not form multiple bonds. For example, in Lewis structures OF beryllium dihydride, BeH 2, and boron trifluoride, BF 3, beryllium and boron atoms each have only four and six electrons, respectively. It is possible to draw a structure with a double bond between boron atom and fluorine atom in BF 3, satisfying the octet rule, but experimental evidence indicates bond lengths are closer to that expected for B - F single bonds. This suggests the best Lewis structure has three B - F single bonds and electron deficient boron. Reactivity OF compound is also consistent with electron deficient boron. However, B - F bonds are slightly shorter than what is actually expected for B - F single bonds, indicating that some double bond characters are found in actual molecule. Atoms like boron atom in BF 3, which do not have eight electrons, are very reactive. It readily combines with molecule containing atom with a lone pair of electrons. For example, NH 3 reacts with BF 3 because lone pair of nitrogen can be shared with boron atom:

Electron Transfer

1 Lewis Electron Dot Diagrams, we saw how ions are formed by losing electrons to make cations or by gaining electrons to form anions. The astute reader may have noticed something: Many of ions that form have eight electrons in their valence shell. Either atoms gain enough electrons to have eight electrons in the valence shell and become appropriately charged anion, or they lose electrons in their original valence shell; lower shell, now the valence shell, has eight electrons in it, so the atom becomes positively charge. For whatever reason, having eight electrons in valence shell is a particularly energetically stable arrangement of electrons. The trend that atoms like to have eight electrons in their valence shell is called the octet rule trend that atoms like to have eight electrons in their valence shell. When atoms form compounds, octet rule is not always satisfy for all atoms at all times, but it is a very good rule of thumb for understanding the kinds of bonding arrangements that atoms can make. It is not impossible to violate the octet rule. Consider Sodium: in its elemental form, it has one valence electron and is stable. It is rather reactive, however, and does not require a lot of energy to remove that Electron to make Na + Ion. We could remove another Electron by adding even more energy to Ion, to make Na 2 + Ion. However, that requires much more energy than is normally available in chemical reactions, so sodium stops at 1 + charge after losing a single electron. It turns out that Na + Ion has completed octet in its new valence shell, n = 2 shell, which satisfies the octet rule. The Octet rule is the result of trends in energies and is useful in explaining why atoms form ions that they do. Now consider Na atom in the presence of Cl atom. Two Atoms have these Lewis Electron Dot Diagrams and Electron configurations: for Na atom to obtain octet, it must lose Electron; for Cl atom to gain octet, it must gain Electron. Electron transfers from Na atom to Cl atom: resulting in two ionsathe Na + Ion and Cl Ion: both species now have complete octets, and electron shells are energetically stable. From basic physics, we know that opposite charges attract. This is what happens to Na + and Cl ions: where we have to write final formula as per convention for Ionic Compounds, without listing charges explicitly. Attraction between oppositely charge ions is called Ionic bond attraction between oppositely charge ions., And it is one of the main types of chemical bonds in chemistry. Ionic bonds are caused by electrons transferring from one atom to another. In electron transfer, number of electrons lost must equal the number of electrons gain. We saw this in Formation of NaCl.

Single Covalent Bonds

9 Plot of Potential Energy versus Internuclear Distance for Interaction between Two Gaseous Hydrogen Atoms at long distances, Both attractive and Repulsive Interactions are small. As the distance between atoms decreases, attractive electron - proton interactions dominate, and energy of system decreases. At observed bond distance, repulsive electron - electron and proton - proton interactions just balance attractive interactions, preventing further decrease in Internuclear distance. At very short internuclear distances, repulsive interactions dominate, making the system less stable than isolated atoms. There are three equivalent resonance structures for nitrate, in which nitrogen is doubly bonded to one of three oxygens. In each resonance structure, formal charge of N is + 1; for each singly bonded O, it is 1; and for doubly bonded oxygen, it is 0. The following is an example of the Lewis Structure that is not plausible: this structure nitrogen has six bonds and a formal charge of - 1. With four S - O single bonds, each oxygen in SO 4 2 has a formal charge of 1, and central sulfur has a formal charge of + 2. With two S = O double bonds, only two oxygens have a formal charge of - 1, and sulfur has a formal charge of zero. Lewis structures that minimize formal charges tend to be lowest in energy, making the Lewis Structure with two S = O double bonds most probable.


Summary

Lewis dot symbols provide a simple rationalization of why elements form compounds with observed stoichiometries. The plot of overall energy of covalent bond as function of internuclear distance is identical to the plot of ionic pair because both result from attractive and repulsive forces between charge entities. In Lewis electron structures, we encounter bonding pairs, which are shared by two atoms, and lone pairs, which are not shared between atoms. If both electrons in a covalent bond come from the same atom, bond is called a coordinate covalent bond. Lewis structures are an attempt to rationalize why certain stoichiometries are commonly observed for elements of particular families. Neutral compounds of group 14 elements typically contain four bonds around each atom, whereas neutral compounds of group 15 elements typically contain three bonds. In cases where it is possible to write more than one Lewis electron structure with octets around all nonhydrogen atoms of the compound, formal charge on each atom in alternative structures must be considered to decide which of valid structures can be excluded and which is most reasonable. Formal charge is the difference between the number of valence electrons of a free atom and the number of electrons assigned to it in a compound, where bonding electrons are divided equally between bond atoms. The Lewis structure with lowest formal charges on atoms is almost always the most stable one.


Using Lewis Electron Structures to Explain Stoichiometry

Lewis dot symbols provide a simple rationalization of why elements form compounds with observed stoichiometries. In the Lewis model, number of bonds formed by element in neutral compound is same as the number of unpaired electrons it must share with other atoms to complete its octet of electrons. For elements of Group 17, this number is one; for elements of Group 16, it is two; for Group 15, three; and for Group 14, four. These requirements are illustrated by following Lewis structures for hydrides of lightest members of each group: elements may form multiple bonds to complete the octet. In ethylene, for example, each carbon contributes two electrons to double bond, giving each carbon octet. Neutral structures with fewer or more bonds exist, but they are unusual and violate the octet rule. Allotropes of element can have very different physical and chemical properties because of different three - dimensional arrangements of atoms; number of bonds formed by component atoms, however, is always the same. As noted at the beginning of the chapter, diamond is hard, transparent solid; graphite is soft, black solid; and fullerenes have open cage structures. Despite these differences, carbon atoms in all three Allotropes form four bonds, in accordance with the octet rule. Elemental Phosphorus also exists in three forms: White Phosphorus, toxic, waxy substance that initially glows and then spontaneously ignites on contact with air; Red Phosphorus, amorphous substance that is used commercially in safety matches, fireworks, and smoke bombs; and Black Phosphorus, unreactive crystalline solid with a texture similar to graphite. Nonetheless, phosphorus atoms in all three forms obey the octet rule and form three bonds per Phosphorus atom.

Double and Triple Bonds

So far, we have considered only single bonds, formed by sharing of one electron from each atom. Many molecules contain double bonds, in which each atom shares two electrons, or triple bonds, in which each atom shares three electrons. These are represented by drawing two or three lines between bond atoms. For example, carbon - carbon double bond can be written as {matheq}{C} :: {C}{endmatheq} or {matheq}{C=C}{endmatheq} carbon - carbon triple bond is shown as {matheq}{C ::: C}{endmatheq} or with three lines between two carbon atoms, as seen in the structure of an organic molecule called acetylene. Just as {matheq}{N}{endmatheq} wants to form 3 bonds, other elements tend to form the same number of bonds in different compounds. We will build Lewis structures that satisfy the octet rule to determine how atoms are attached to one another using components shown in the table below to create structures that follow the octet rule.
