Now we build Lewis structures by elaborating from neutral atoms, and of course, we have to account for charge on atom or radical ion. Take, for example, nitrate ion, NO_3. Nitrogen, Group V, has 5 valence electrons; oxygen, Group VI, has 6 valence electrons. And we throw in another electron, so that we have 5 + 3xx6 + 1 = 24 valence electrons, ie 12 electron pairs in Lewis structure of NO_3 - to distribute around 4 centres. And thus we get O = N + _2. From left, around doubly bind oxygen there are 2 + 2 lone pair electrons on oxygen, 4 electrons, and in O = N bond, 4 electrons, NO lone pair on cationic, quaternized nitrogen, and 2xx8 = 16 electrons on formally singly bound oxygen, each of which bear NEGATIVE charge: thus 24 valence electrons as require for Lewis structure. So all we do is to take the number of valence electrons, and add these numbers together, and add or subtract depending on NEGATIVE or positive charge of species. Can you do same for PO_4? There must be 32 electrons to distribute, ie 16 electron pairs. In the Lewis structure, atoms that are bonded covalently are represented by a single line joining two atoms, which are represented by the element's chemical symbol. Covalent bonds occur mainly in diatomic molecules, such as hydrogen, nitrogen, fluorine, chlorine, bromine, iodine, and astatine. Lewis dot diagram for covalent BONDING of chlorine, would be: when atoms are bonded ionically, bond is represented by two dots between element's chemical symbols. Ionic bonds are formed between charge particles, so an example of an ionic compound would be NaCl, whose Lewis structure is: modern chemical bond is conceived to be a region of high electron density between two positively charged atomic nuclei such that internuclear repulsion is negated and attractive force results between positively charged nuclei and intervening electron cloud. Electrons surround individual atoms in orbitals whose shapes correspond to Platonic solids, in such a way that electron pairs mutually repel each other. And so it is important to account for valence electronic configuration of atom, as atom, or as atom in molecule. And thus, Lewis dot treatment distributes valence electrons. And we can easily find the number of valence electrons for give atom by noting its group number in the Periodic Table, which number gives the required number of electrons. For simple example, consider ammonia, NH_3, which has 5 nitrogen valence electrons, and 3 electrons from hydrogen. We distribute these valence electrons around the molecule. And the number of BONDING and NON - BONDING electron pairs DIRECTLY influences molecular geometry. Nothing I say here will replace reading relevant chapters in your text, so get to it. And we will be available for any questions that arise.

Lewis Structures for Polyatomic Ions

Lewis Structure of ion is placed in brackets and its charge is written as superscript outside of the brackets, on upper right. The total number of Electrons represented in the Lewis Structure is equal to the sum of the number of Valence Electrons in each individual atom. Non - Valence Electrons are not represented in Lewis structures. After the total number of available electrons has been determine, electrons must be placed into structure. Lewis structures for polyatomic ions are drawn by the same methods that we have already learned. When counting electrons, negative ions should have extra electrons place in their Lewis structures; positive ions should have fewer electrons than uncharged molecule.S When the Lewis Structure of ion is write, entire structure is placed in brackets, and charge is written as superscript on upper right, outside of brackets. For example, consider the ammonium ion, NH 4 +, which contains 9 - 1 = 8 Electrons. One electron is subtracted because the entire molecule has + 1 charge.


Lewis Dot Structures Defined

Periodic table has all of the information needed to draw the Lewis dot structure. Each group, or column, is indicated by roman numeral which represents the number of valence electrons. This is applicable to entire group. For example, all elements which fall within the first column, or Group I, have one valence electron. All elements in Group II have two valence electrons, all way up to VIII, eight valence electrons. Properties are also consistent across rows, or periods, of periodic table. Periods are indicated by number, 1 2 3, etc. Which represents the energy level, or shell of electrons. The First Period, or row, has only one energy level that can hold a total of two electrons. Period 2, with a second shell, can hold a total of eight electrons, also know as the octet rule. Period 3 and so forth can hold more than eight electrons. Periodic tables also convey electronegativity. Most electronegative elements are located in uppermost right corner of the period table and decrease in electronegativity as you go down Group or more left of period. Throughout drawing Lewis dot structures, periodic table will be a strong reference point when working with electrons, covalent bonding, and polyatomic ions.

9.1 Lewis Electron Dot Diagrams

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 an atom that uses dots around the symbol of element. The 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 the third period of the periodic table.

In the previous chapter, you learn that valence electrons of atom can be shown in a simple way with an electron dot diagram. The Hydrogen atom is shown as {matheq}{H} \cdot{endmatheq} because of its one valence electron. Structures of molecules that are held together by covalent bonds can be diagram by Lewis electron - dot structures. Hydrogen molecules are shown in the figure below. Share pair of electrons is shown as two dots in between two {matheq}{H}{endmatheq} symbols {matheq}\left( {H:H} \right){endmatheq} This is called a single covalent bond, when two atoms are joined by sharing of one pair of electrons. Single covalent bonds can also be shown by dashes in between two symbols. {matheq}\left( {H-H} \right){endmatheq} structural formula is a formula that shows arrangement of atoms in molecule and represents covalent bonds between atoms by dashes.

Double and Triple Bonds

Sometimes, atoms share more than one electron and form more than one pair, such as in O 2. In this case, you put four dots between two letters, or two lines to signify two bonds or two pairs of shared electrons. The same would go for three or four pairs. Four pairs, or bonds, are most any two atoms can share. Determine type and number of atoms in molecule. Write Lewis dot structure for each individual atom. Connect atoms by electron pair bonds so that each atom has a full octet. If you have carbon in your molecule, it is always in the middle. Hydrogens are usually on the outside. Double - check your work and make sure every atom has eight electrons and no more. What about CH 4? How would you write that one? Let's go through steps. Determine type and number of atoms in molecule. Write Lewis dot structure for each individual atom. Connect atoms by electron pair bonds so that each atom has a full octet. You put C in the middle and it forms four total bonds, one with each hydrogen atom. Double - check your work and make sure every atom has eight electrons and no more.

Fullerene Chemistry

The first law of thermodynamics states that energy can be transferred or transform, but cannot be created or destroy. Thermodynamics is study of heat energy and other types of energy, such as work, and various ways energy is transferred within chemical systems. Thermo - refers to heat, while dynamics refers to motion. The first law of thermodynamics deals with the total amount of energy in the universe. Law states that this total amount of energy is constant. In other words, there has always been, and always will be, exactly the same amount of energy in the universe. Energy exists in many different forms. According to the first law of thermodynamics, energy can be transferred from place to place or change between different forms, but it cannot be created or destroy. Transfers and transformations of energy take place around us all the time. For instance, light bulbs transform electrical energy into light energy, and gas stoves transform chemical energy from natural gas into heat energy. Plants perform one of the most biologically useful transformations of energy on Earth: they convert energy of sunlight into chemical energy stored within organic molecules. Thermodynamics often divides the universe into two categories: system and its surroundings. In chemistry, system almost always refers to giving chemical reaction and the container in which it takes place. The first law of thermodynamics tells us that energy can neither be created nor destroy, so we know that energy that is absorbed in endothermic chemical reaction must have been lost from surroundings. Conversely, in exothermic reaction, heat that is released in reaction is given off and absorbed by surroundings. State mathematically, we have: we know that chemical systems can either absorb heat from their surroundings, if the reaction is endothermic, or release heat to their surroundings, if the reaction is exothermic. However, chemical reactions are often used to do work instead of just exchanging heat. For instance, when rocket fuel burns and causes the space shuttle to lift off from the ground, chemical reaction, by propelling rocket, is doing work by applying force over distance. If youve ever witnessed video of the space shuttle lifting off, chemical reactions that occur also release tremendous amounts of heat and light. Another useful form of the first law of thermodynamics relates to heat and work for change in energy of the internal system: {matheq}\Delta E_{sys} = Q + W{endmatheq} While this formulation is more commonly used in physics, it is still important to know for chemistry. Both heat and work refer to processes by which energy is transferred to or from substance. When energy is exchanged between thermodynamic systems by thermal interaction, transfer of energy is called heat. Units of heat are therefore units of energy, or joules. Heat is transferred by conduction, convection, and / or radiation. Heat is transferred by conduction occurs when an object with high thermal energy comes into contact with an object with low thermal energy.


Exceptions to 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 13, outer atoms that are hydrogen, or other atoms that do not form multiple bonds. For example, in Lewis structures of beryllium dihydride, and boron trifluoride, 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, 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 atoms, which do not have eight electrons, are very reactive. It readily combines with molecule containing atom with a lone pair of electrons. For example, react with because lone pair of nitrogen can be shared with boron atom:


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 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 atom interacts with eight valence electrons: six in lone pairs and two in single bond.

Exceptions to the Octet Rule

Three cases can be constructed that do not follow the Octet Rule, and as such, they are known as exceptions to the Octet Rule. Following the Octet Rule for Lewis Dot structure leads to the most accurate depictions of stable molecular and atomic structures and, because of this, we always want to use the Octet Rule when drawing Lewis Dot Structures. However, it is hard to imagine that one rule could be followed by all molecules. There are always exception,sss and in this case, three exceptions: When there are odd number of Valence Electrons When there are too few Valence Electrons When there are too many Valence Electrons there are actually very few stable molecules with odd numbers of Electrons that exist, since that unpaired electron is willing to react with other unpaired Electrons. Most odd electron species are highly reactive, which we call Free Radicals. Because of their instability, Free Radicals bond to atoms in which they can take electrons from in order to become stable, making them very chemically reactive. Radicals are found as both reactants and products, but generally react to form more stable molecules as soon as they can. In order to emphasize the existence of unpaired electron, radicals are denoted with Dot in front of their chemical symbol as with {matheq}\cdot OH{endmatheq} hydroxyl radical. Example of radical you may already be familiar with already is gaseous chlorine atom, denoted {matheq}\cdot Cl{endmatheq} interestingly, odd number of Valence Electrons will result in a molecule being paramagnetic. Example: {matheq}NF_3{endmatheq} draw Lewis structure for Boron trifluoride. No. It has 6 Electrons added multiple bonds to see if the central atom can achieve Octet: 6. Central Boron now has Octet in this structure with double bond fluorine atom is sharing extra electrons with Boron. Fluorine would have + partial charge, and Boron - partial charge, This is inconsistent with electronegativities of fluorine and Boron. Thus, structure of BF 3, with single bonds, and 6 Valence Electrons around central Boron is the most likely structure. Bf 3 reacts strongly to compounds which have unshared pair of Electrons which can be used to form bonds with Boron: example: {matheq}SO_4^{-2}{endmatheq} ion such is the case for sulfate ion, SO 4 - 2. Strict adherence to Octet Rule forms following Lewis structure: if we look at formal charges on this molecule, we can see that all oxygen atoms have seven electrons around them. This is one more electron than the number of Valence Electrons that they would have normally, and as such, each of the oxygens in this structure has a formal charge of - 1. Sulfur has four electrons around it in this structure, which is two electrons more than the number of Valence Electrons it would have normally, and as such it carries a formal charge of + 2.


The Incomplete Octet

The second exception to the Octet Rule is when there are too few valence electrons that results in an incomplete Octet. There are even more occasions where the Octet Rule does not give the most correct depiction of molecule or ion. This is also the case with incomplete events. Species with incomplete octets are pretty rare and generally are only found in some beryllium, aluminum, and boron compounds including boron hydrides. Let's take a look at one such hydride, BH 3. If one were to make a Lewis Structure for BH 3 following basic strategies for drawing Lewis structures, one would probably come up with this Structure Figure: problem with this structure is that boron has an incomplete Octet; it only has six electrons around it. Hydrogen atoms can naturally only have only 2 electrons in their outermost shell, and as such, there are no spare electrons to form double Bond with boron. One might surmise that failure of this structure to form complete octets must mean that this Bond should be ionic instead of covalent. However, boron has electronegativity that is very similar to hydrogen, meaning there is likely very little ionic character in hydrogen to boron bonds, and as such, this Lewis Structure, though it does not fulfill the Octet Rule, is likely the best structure possible for depicting BH 3 with Lewis theory. One of things that may account for BH 3's incomplete Octet is that it is commonly a transitory species, forming temporarily in reactions that involve multiple steps. Let's take a look at another incomplete Octet situation dealing with boron, BF 3. Like with BH 3, initial drawing of the Lewis Structure of BF 3 will form a structure where boron has only six electrons around it. Figure: If you look at Figure: you can see that fluorine atoms possess extra lone pairs that they can use to make additional bonds with boron, and you might think that all you have to do is make one lone pair into bond and the structure will be correct. If we add one double bond between boron and one of the fluorines, we get the following Lewis Structure Figure: each fluorine has eight electrons, and boron atom has eight as well! Each atom has perfect Octet, right? Not so fast. We must examine the formal charges of this structure. Fluorine that shares double bond with boron has six electrons around it. This is one less electron than the number of valence electrons it would have naturally, so it has a formal charge of + 1. Two flourines that share single bonds with boron have seven electrons around them. This is the same amount as the number of valence electrons they would have on their own, so they both have a formal charge of zero. Finally, boron has four electrons around it.

Lewis Dot Structures can be drawn to show Valence Electrons that surround the atom itself. This type of Lewis Dot Structure is represented by an atomic symbol and a series of dots. See following examples of how to draw Lewis Dot Structures for common atoms involved in covalent bonding. Since Hydrogen is in Group I, it has one Valence electron in its shell. Since fluorine is in Period 2, it can fit a maximum of eight Electrons second energy level. Fluorine Group VII, which means it has a total of seven Valence Electrons around the atom. Since Oxygen is in Period 2, it can fit a maximum of eight Electrons second energy level. Oxygen Group VI, which means it has a total of six Valence Electrons around atom carbon, is in Group IV, 4 Valence Electrons. Total of Valence Electrons in Carbon = 4 Hydrogen, Group I, has 1 electron x 2 = 2 Oxygen, Group VI, has 6 Electrons x 1 = 6 Total Valence Electrons in water = 8 magnesium, Group 2, has 2 Electrons x 1 = 2 Bromine, Group 7, has 7 Electrons x 2 = 14 Total of Valence Electrons in MgBr 2 = 16
