General | Latest Info

Nitrogen Dioxide is a covalent compound that is composed of a central nitrogen atom single bonded to an oxygen atom and double bonded with another oxygen atom. At room temperatures, nitrogen Dioxide is a reddish - brown gas that has a density of 1. 8 g / dm 3. It is slightly toxic to humans, on account of its tendency to react in the human body and produce reactive species of nitrogen and oxygen, which can damage internal structures. Nitrogen Dioxide does not have a single Lewis structure on account of its relatively strange electron configuration. The location of double bond changes over time, meaning that at any point, either of oxygen atoms could have double bond with nitrogen atom. As such, nitrogen Dioxide is represented by the resonance Lewis structure: Nitrogen Dioxide requires resonance Lewis structure because its electron configuration constantly oscillates between two forms. True electron configuration of nitrogen Dioxide is considered to be average of two resonance structures given above. The Lewis structure of nitrogen dioxide is also interesting because there is a single unpaired Valence electron on the central nitrogen atom. Compounds with unpaired electrons are sometimes referred to as Free Radicals. This unpaired electron explains nitrogen dioxide reactive behavior as it has a strong desire to fill this open electron spot. Lets take a step back and go over the rules for drawing Lewis structure. We will go step - by - step to see how we can construct the Lewis structure for most main - group compound, nitrogen Dioxide include.

Rules for Making Lewis Structures

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. The Octet Rule is violated in these three scenarios: when there is an odd number of valence electrons, when there are too few valence electrons, when there are too many valence electrons

Exception 3: Expanded Valence Shells

The Octet rule is a bonding theory used to predict molecular structure of covalently bonded molecules. According to rule, atoms seek to have eight electrons in their outeror valenceelectron shells. Each atom will share, gain, or lose electrons to fill these outer electron shells with exactly eight electrons. For many elements, this rule works and is a quick and simple way to predict the molecular structure of molecule. But, as saying go, rules are made to be break. And the octet rule has more elements breaking rules than following it. While Lewis electron dot structures help determine bonding in most compounds, there are three general exceptions: molecules in which atoms have fewer than eight electrons; molecules in which atoms have more than eight electrons; and molecules with an odd number of electrons
