Draw Lewis dot structures and resonance structures for following. Some hints are give. {matheq}{CO2}{endmatheq} plus two more dots for each of {matheq}\textrm{:O::C::O:}{endmatheq} {matheq}{O}{endmatheq} {matheq}{NO2}{endmatheq} {matheq}\textrm{:O::C::O:}{endmatheq} {matheq}\textrm{:O::C::O:}{endmatheq} notice that some of resonance structures may not satisfy the octet rule. {matheq}\textrm{:O::C::O:}{endmatheq} molecule has an odd number of electrons, and the octet rule cannot be satisfied for nitrogen atom. Draw resonance structures of {matheq}\textrm{:O::C::O:}{endmatheq} resonance structure are shown on the right here. Note that only locations of double and single bonds change here. What are formal charges for {matheq}\textrm{:O::C::O:}{endmatheq} atoms? What are formal charges for oxygen atoms that are single bond and double bond to {matheq}\textrm{:O::C::O:}{endmatheq} respectively? Please work these numbers out. Formal charges: {matheq}\textrm{:O::C::O:}{endmatheq} + 1; {matheq}\textrm{:O::C::O:}{endmatheq} 0; {matheq}\textrm{:O::C::O:}{endmatheq} most stable structure has least formal charge. In a stable structure, adjacent atoms should have formal charges of opposite signs. More stable structure, more it contributes to the resonance structure of molecule or ion. All three structures above are the same, only the double bond rotates.

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 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.


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:

Formal charge rules

Draw Lewis dot structure for {matheq}{SO2}{endmatheq} {matheq}\mathrm{ :\overset{\Large{..}}O : :\overset{\Large{..}}S : :\overset{\Large{..}}O :}{endmatheq} put all atoms together to make a molecule and check to see if it satisfies the octet rule. {matheq}\begin{alignat}{1} :&\overset{\Large{..}}{ O} : :&&\overset{\Large{..}}{ S} : :&&\overset{\Large{..}}{ O} : &&\textrm{ <= octet rule not satisfied}\ &\,0 &&\,0 &&\,0 &&\textrm{ formal charge} \end{alignat}{endmatheq} adjusts bonding electrons so that octet rules apply to all atoms. {matheq}\begin{alignat}{1} &:\underset{\Large{..}}{\overset{\Large{..}}{ O}} &&:\overset{\Large{..}}{ S} : :&&\overset{\Large{..}}{ O} : &&\textrm{ <- octet rule satisfied}\ &\,{-1} &&\,{+1} &&\,0 &&\textrm{ formal charge} \end{alignat}{endmatheq} since leave {matheq}{O}{endmatheq} has 6 unshared plus 2 shared electrons, it effectively has 7 electrons for 6 - valence - electron {matheq}{O}{endmatheq} and thus its formal charge is - 1. The formal charge for {matheq}{O}{endmatheq} = 6 - 6 - = - 1. The formal charge for {matheq}{S}{endmatheq} = 6 - 2 - = + 1. There is yet another structure that does not satisfy the octet rule, but it's reasonable structure:


Resonance

Resonance structures depict possible electronic configurations; actual configuration is a combination of possible variations. Lewis dot structures can be drawn to visualize electrons and bonds of certain molecule.S However, for some molecules, not all bonding possibilities cannot be represented by a single Lewis structure; these molecules have several contributing or resonance structures. In chemistry terms, resonance describes the fact that electrons delocalize, or flow freely through molecule, which allows multiple structures to be possible for give molecule. Each contributing resonance structure can be visualized by drawing the Lewis structure; however, it is important to note that each of these structures cannot actually be observed in nature. That is, molecules do not actually go back and forth between these configurations; rather, true structure is approximate intermediate between each of structures. This intermediate has overall lower energy than each of possible configurations and is referred to as a resonance hybrid. It is important to note that the difference between each structure lies in the location of electrons and not in the arrangement of atoms.

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 Draw 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. Negative ions follow the same procedure. The Chlorite ion, ClO 2 -, contains 19 + 1 = 20 Electrons. One electron is added because the entire molecule has - 1 charge.


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 periodic table. For example, each atom OF group 14 element 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:
