We begin our discussion of the relationship between structure and bonding in covalent compounds by describing the interaction between two identical neutral atomsfor, example, H 2 Molecule, which contains purely covalent bond. Each hydrogen atom in H 2 contains one electron and one proton, with the electron attracted to the proton by electrostatic forces. As two Hydrogen Atoms are brought together, additional interactions must be consider: Electrons in two atoms repel each other because they have the same charge. Similarly, protons in adjacent atoms repel each other. An electron in one atom is attracted to an oppositely charged proton in the other atom and vice versa. Recall from Chapter 6 Structure of Atoms that it is impossible to specify precisely the position of electron in either hydrogen atom. Hence, quantum mechanical probability distributions must be used plot of Potential Energy of system as the function of Internuclear Distance shows that the system becomes more stable as two Hydrogen Atoms move toward each other from r =, until energy reaches minimum at r = r 0. Thus, at intermediate distances, proton - electron attractive interactions dominate, but as distance becomes very short, electron - electron and proton - proton repulsive interactions cause energy of the system to increase rapidly. Notice similarity between Figure 8. 9 Plot of Potential Energy versus Internuclear Distance for Interaction between Two Gaseous Hydrogen Atoms and Figure 8. 1 Plot of Potential Energy versus Internuclear Distance for Interaction between Gaseous Na, which describes a system containing two oppositely charge ions. The shapes of energy versus distance curves in two figures are similar because they both result from attractive and repulsive forces between charge entities.

H 2 O

The following procedure can be used to construct Lewis electron structures for more complex molecules and ions: now let's apply this procedure to some particular compounds, beginning with one we have already discuss. The United States Supreme Court has the unenviable task of deciding what the law is. This responsibility can be a major challenge when there is NO clear principle involved or where there is new situation not encountered before. Chemistry faces the same challenge in extending basic concepts to fit new situation. Drawing of Lewis structures for polyatomic ions uses the same approach, but tweaks process little to fit somewhat different set of circumstances. 1. Determine total number of valence electrons in molecule or ion. Add together valence electrons from each atom. If a species is a polyatomic ion, remember to add or subtract the number of electrons necessary to give total charge on ion. For CO 3 2, for example, we add two electrons to the total because of 2 charge. When there is a central atom, it is usually the least electronegative element in the compound. Chemists usually list this central atom first in chemical formula, which is another clue to compound structure. Hydrogen and halogens are almost always connected to only one other atom, so they are usually terminal rather than central. 3. Place bonding pair of electrons between each pair of adjacent atoms to give a single bond. In H 2 O, for example, there is a bonding pair of electrons between oxygen and each hydrogen. 4. Beginning with terminal atoms, add enough electrons to each atom to give each atom an octet. These electrons will usually be lone pairs. 5. If any electrons are left over, place them on the central atom. We will explain later that some atoms are able to accommodate more than eight electrons. 6. If the central atom has fewer electrons than octet, use lone pairs from terminal atoms to form multiple bonds to the central atom to achieve octet. This will not change the number of electrons on terminal atoms. Always make sure all valence electrons are accounted for and each atom has octet of electrons except for hydrogen. Identify each violation of the octet rule by drawing a Lewis electron dot diagram. Clo SF 6. With one Cl atom and one O atom, this molecule has 6 + 7 = 13 valence electrons, so it is an odd - electron molecule. The Lewis electron dot diagram for this molecule is as follow: B. In SF 6, central S atom makes six covalent bonds to six surrounding f atoms, so it is an expand valence shell molecule. Its Lewis electron dot diagram is as follow:

OCl

Ncl 3 S 2 2 NOCl Uses six - step procedure to write Lewis electron Structure for each species. Nitrogen is less electronegative than chlorine, and halogen atoms are usually terminal, so Nitrogen is the central atom. The nitrogen atom has 5 Valence Electrons and each chlorine atom has 7 Valence Electrons, for a total of 26 Valence Electrons. Using 2 Electrons for each N - Cl Bond and adding three lone pairs to each Cl accounts for + = 24 Electrons. Rule 5 leads us to place the remaining 2 Electrons on central N: Nitrogen trichloride is an unstable oily liquid once used to bleach flour; this use is now prohibited in the United States. Calculate formal charges on each atom in NH 4 + ion. Identify the number of Valence Electrons in each atom in NH 4 + ion. Use Lewis electron Structure of NH 4 + to identify the number of bonding and nonbonding electrons associated with each atom and then use Equation 4. 41 to Calculate formal charge on each atom. The Lewis electron structure for NH 4 + ion is as follow: Nitrogen atom shares four bonding pairs of Electrons, and the neutral Nitrogen atom has five Valence Electrons. Using Equation 4. 41, formal charge on nitrogen atom is therefore F O r m l C H r g e = 5 = 0. Each hydrogen atom has one bonding pair. The formal charge on each hydrogen atom is, therefore, F O r m l C H r g e = 1 = 0. Formal charges on atoms in NH 4 + ion are thus adding together formal charges on atoms should give us total charge on molecule or ion. In this case, sum of formal charges is 0 + 1 + 0 + 0 + 0 = + 1. Thiocyanate ion, which is used in printing and as a corrosion inhibitor against acidic gases, has at least two possible Lewis electron structures. Draw two possible structures, assign formal charges on all atoms in both, and decide which is the preferred arrangement of electrons. Ask for: Lewis electron Structures, formal charges, and preferred arrangement Use step - by - step procedure to write two plausible Lewis electron Structures for SCN. B Calculate formal charge on each atom using Equation 4. 41. C Predict Which Structure is preferred based on formal charge on each atom and its electronegativity relative to other atoms present. Possible Lewis Structures for SCN ion are as follow: b We must calculate formal charges on each atom to identify a more stable structure. If we begin with carbon, we notice that the carbon atom in each of these structures shares four bonding pairs, number of bonds typical for carbon, so it has a formal charge of zero.

Formal Charges

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. For example, nitrate ion, NO 3 -, has more than one valid Lewis structure. The structure contains two N - O single bonds and one N = O double bond. But questions then remain as to which oxygen should be involved in double bond. Therefore, three valid resonance structures can be draw. Double - end arrows are used to indicate that structures are chemically equivalent. Again, in reality, electronic configuration does not change between three structures; rather, it has one structure in which extra electrons are distributed evenly. These fractional bonds are sometimes depicted by dashed arrows, which show that electron density is spread out throughout the compound.

Example 5

Recall that polyatomic ion is a group of atoms that are covalently bonded together and which carry overall electrical charge. Ammonium ion, {matheq}{NH_4^+}{endmatheq} is formed when hydrogen ion {matheq}\left( {H^+} \right){endmatheq} attaches to lone pair of ammonia {matheq}\left( {NH_3} \right){endmatheq} molecules in coordinate covalent bond. When drawing the Lewis structure of a polyatomic ion, charge of ion is reflected in the number of total valence electrons in the structure. In the case of ammonium ion: {matheq}1 \: {N}{endmatheq} atom {matheq}= 5{endmatheq} valence electrons, {matheq}4 \: {H}{endmatheq} atoms {matheq}= 4 \times 1 = 4{endmatheq} valence electrons subtract 1 electron for {matheq}1+{endmatheq} charge of ion, it is customary to put Lewis structure of polyatomic ion into large set of brackets, with charge of ion as superscript outside brackets.

CO 2

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 an 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. 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.

Example 6

Phosphorus pentachloride is an exception to the octet rule. You can see 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. 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.

O 3

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. Lewis structures for polyatomic ions follow the same rules as those for other covalent compounds. There are three violations to the octet rule: odd - electron molecules, electron - deficient molecules, and expand valence shell molecules

Example 7

The Lewis symbol for atom depicts the valence of electrons as dots around the symbol for element. In order to write Lewis symbol for atom, you must first determine the number of valence electrons for that element. Arrangement of a periodic table can help you figure out this information. Since we have established that the number of valence electrons determines chemical reactivity of element,s table orders elements by number of valence electrons. Each column of the periodic table contains elements that have the same number of valence electrons. Furthermore, number of columns from leave edge of the table tells us the exact number of valence electrons for that element. Recall that any valence level can have up to eight electrons, except for the first principal energy level, which can only have two.

Summary

Lewis symbols use dots to visually represent the valence of electrons of an atom. Lewis symbols are diagrams that represent the valence of electrons of an atom. Lewis structures are diagrams that represent valence electrons of atoms within molecule. These Lewis symbols and Lewis structures help visualize valence electrons of atoms and molecules, whether they exist as lone pairs or within bonds. Atom consists of a positively charged nucleus and negatively charged electrons. Electrostatic attraction between them keeps electrons bound to the nucleus so they stay within a certain distance of it. Careful investigations have shown that not all electrons within the atom have the same average position or energy. We say electrons reside at different principal energy levels, and these levels exist at different radii from nucleus and have rules regarding how many electrons they can accommodate.
