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 bond O, it is 1; and for doubly bond oxygen, it is 0. The following is an example of 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 Lewis structures with two S = O double bonds most probable.

Exceptions to the Octet Rule

As important and useful as the Octet Rule is in chemical bonding, there are some well - known violations. This does not mean that the Octet Rule is uselessquite, contrary. As with many rules, there are exceptions, or violations. There are three violations of the Octet Rule. Odd - electron Molecules represent the first violation of the Octet Rule. Although they are few, some stable compounds have an odd number of Electrons in their Valence shells. With odd number of Electrons, at least one atom in molecule will have to violate the Octet Rule. Examples of stable odd - electron Molecules are NO, NO 2, and ClO 2. The Lewis electron Dot diagram for NO is as follow: although O atom has Octet of Electrons, N atom has only seven Electrons in its Valence shell. Although NO is a stable compound, it is very chemically reactive, as are most other odd - electron compounds. Electron - deficient Molecules represent the second violation of the Octet Rule. These stable compounds have less than eight electrons around atom in molecule. The most common examples are covalent compounds of beryllium and Boron. For example, beryllium can form two covalent bonds, resulting in only four electrons in its Valence shell: Boron commonly makes only three covalent bonds, resulting in only six Valence Electrons around B atom. The well - known example is BF 3: third violation of the Octet Rule is found in those compounds with more than eight Electrons assigned to their Valence shell. These are called Expanded Valence shell Molecules. Such compounds are formed only by central atoms in third row of the periodic table or beyond that have empty d orbitals in their Valence shells that can participate in covalent bonding. One such compound is PF 5. The only reasonable Lewis electron Dot diagram for this compound has P atom making five covalent bonds: formally, P atom has 10 Electrons in its Valence shell.


Exception 2: Incomplete Octets

However, many atoms below atomic number 20 often form compounds that do not follow the Octet Rule. For example, with the duet Rule of first principal energy level, noble gas helium, He, has two electrons at its outer level. Since there is no 1p subshell, 1s is followed immediately by 2s, and thus level 1 can only have at most two valence electrons. Hydrogen only needs one additional electron to attain this stable configuration, through either covalent sharing of electrons or by becoming hydride ion, while lithium needs to lose one by combining ionically with other elements. This leads to hydrogen and lithium both having two electrons in their valence shellthe same electronic configuration as heliumwhen they form molecules by bonding with other elements.

Summary

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. Some molecules have two or more chemically equivalent Lewis electron structures, called resonance structures. These structures are written with double - head arrow between them, indicating that none of Lewis ' structures accurately describes bonding but that the actual structure is an average of individual resonance structures.

Not all covalent bonds are fit for Sesame Street: some covalent bonds are shared unequally. Some atoms have greater ability to attract electrons to themselves than do others. The tendency for atom to attract electrons is its electronegativity. Don't confuse electricity with electron affinity. While both are periodic properties that exhibit similar trends, electron affinity is a measure of energy whereas electronegativity is simply a measure of attraction based on arbitrary scale. Fluorine, in the upper right hand corner of the periodic table, is the most electronegative element and is assigned Electronegativity of 4. 0 while other elements are regarded relative to fluorine. Electronegativity increases from left to right across periodic table, and decreases as you move down group. When covalent bonds are formed between atoms of different electronegativities result is that shared electrons skew more toward one atom than other. The resulting molecule is dipole: more electronegative atom in Bond gains partial negative charge while less electronegative atom becomes partially positive. The resulting bond is called a polar covalent Bond. In Lewis structures, cross - end arrow is used to represent such polar bonds, with the arrow pointing to more electronegative element. Partial charge symbols + and - are used to represent Polarity. Figure%: Illustrating polar covalent bonds in HCl and Ammonium

Double and Triple Bonds

Ionic bonding typically occurs when it is easy for one atom to lose one or more electrons and another atom to gain one or more electrons. However, some atoms wont give up or gain electrons easily. Yet they still participate in compound formation. How? There is another mechanism for obtaining a complete valence shell: sharing electrons. When electrons are shared between two atoms, they make a bond called Covalent Bond. Let us illustrate the Covalent Bond by using H atoms, with understanding that h atoms need only two electrons to fill s subshell. Each H atom starts with a single electron in its valence shell: {matheq}\mathbf{H\, \cdot }\; \; \; \; \; \mathbf{\cdot \: H}{endmatheq} we can use circles to show that each H atom has two electrons around the nucleus, completely filling each atoms valence shell: because each H atom has filled valence shell, this bond is stable, and we have made diatomic hydrogen molecule. For simplicity sake, it is not unusual to represent the Covalent Bond with a dash, instead of with two dots: because two atoms are sharing one pair of electrons, this Covalent Bond is called a single Bond. As another example, consider fluorine. F atoms have seven electrons in their valence shell: these two atoms can do the same thing that h atoms do; they share their unpaired electrons to make Covalent Bond. Note that each F atom has a complete octet around it now: we can also write this using dash to represent share electron pair: there are two different types of electrons in fluorine diatomic molecule. Bonding electron pair make Covalent Bond. Each F atom has three other pairs of electrons that do not participate in bonding; they are called lone pair electrons. Each F atom has one bonding pair and three lone pairs of electrons. Covalent bonds can be made between different elements as well. One example is HF. Each atom starts out with an odd number of electrons in its valence shell: two atoms can share their unpaired electrons to make a Covalent Bond: we note that the H atom has a full valence shell with two electrons, while the F atom has a complete octet of electrons. When working with Covalent Structures, it sometimes looks like you have leftover electrons. You apply rules you have learned so far and there are still some electrons hanging out there unattached. You can't just leave them there. So where do you put them?

Example 3

Phosphorus pentachloride is an exception to the octet rule. You can see the Lewis Structure of PCl 3 in practice problems below. Because the chlorine atom only needs one electron to complete its Valence shell, it shares one and only one electron with phosphorus, so in PCl 5, phosphorus is surrounded by a total of ten electrons. It does this by using its d - shell Electrons. A more 3 - dimensional structure is shown on right. Three chlorines are in the plane and the line containing the other two cuts through the center of that triangle and is perpendicular to it. Arrangement is called trigonal bipyramid.

Key Concepts and 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.


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.


Using Lewis Electron Structures to Explain Stoichiometry

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 the 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 and silicon in. 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. Oxygen and other atoms in Group 16 obtain octet by forming two covalent bonds:

Because carbon is less electronegative than oxygen and hydrogen is normally terminal, C must be the central atom. One possible arrangement is as follow: 2. Each hydrogen atom has one valence electron, carbon has 4 valence electrons, and oxygen has 6 valence electrons, for a total of 12 valence electrons. 3. Placing bonding pair of electrons between each pair of bond atoms give following: 4. Adding all 6 remaining electrons to oxygen gives following: although oxygen now has octets and each hydrogen has 2 electrons, carbon has only 6 electrons. 5. There are no electrons leave to place on the central atom. 6. To give carbon octet of electrons, we use one of lone pairs of electrons on oxygen to form a carbon - oxygen double bond: both oxygen and carbon now have octet of electrons, so this is an acceptable Lewis electron structure. O has two bonding pairs and two lone pairs, and C has four bonding pairs. This is the structure of formaldehyde, which is used in embalming fluid. An alternative structure can be drawn with one H bond to O. Formal charges, discussed later in this Section, suggest that such a structure is less stable than that shown previously.
