Principal energy levels of gold: Figure shows the organization of electrons around the nucleus of the gold atom. Notice that the first energy level can have only two electrons, while more electrons can fit within give level further out. The number of electrons in each level is listed in upper right corner of the figure. Notice that the outermost level has only one electron. Lewis dot dragram for Methane: Methane, with molecular formula CH 4, is show. Electrons are color - cod to indicate which atoms they belong to before covalent bonds form, with red representing hydrogen and blue representing carbon. Four covalent bonds are formed so that C has an octet of valence electrons, and each H has two valence electronsone, from the carbon atom and one from one of the hydrogen atoms. Lewis structure of Acetic acid: Acetic acid, CH 3 COOH, can be written out with dots indicating shared electrons, or, preferably, with dashes representing covalent bonds. Notice lone pairs of electrons on oxygen atoms are still on show. The Methyl group carbon atom has six valence electrons from its bonds to hydrogen atoms because carbon is more electronegative than hydrogen. Also, one electron is gained from its bond with other carbon atom because the electron pair in CC bond is split equally.

Lewis Structures for Polyatomic Ions

We also use Lewis symbols to indicate 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 Cl 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 a single bond. Each Cl atom interacts with eight Valence Electrons: six in lone pairs and two in single bond.


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:

Lewis Electron-Dot Structures

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 diagrammed by Lewis electron - dot structures. The hydrogen molecule is 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.

Single Covalent Bonds

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 tweak 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 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 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 expanded valence shell Molecule. Its Lewis electron dot diagram is as follow:


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.

Double and Triple Bonds

Here is an example of a case where we can find two valid Lewis Structures for compound, fulminic acid. We can use formal charges to decide which is most likely to be actual arrangement of atoms. Here are the structures: now let's calculate formal charges of lower structure, using double - bonds: note that carbon has a formal charge of - 1 and nitrogen charge of - 1. Formal charges of structure with triple bonds look like this: here, oxygen, most electronegative element in molecule, has a negative charge, and nitrogen retains its + 1 charge. This structure is more likely to be correct one, because negative charge is on most electronegative elements of C, N and O.


The Octet Rule

For very simple molecules and molecular ions, we can write Lewis structures by merely pairing up unpaired electrons on constituent atoms. See these examples: For more complicated molecules and molecular ions, it is helpful to follow the step - by - step procedure outlined here: determining total number of valence electrons. For cations, subtract one electron for each positive charge. For anions, add one electron for each negative charge. Draw skeleton structure of a molecule or ion, arranging atoms around the central atom. Connect each atom to the central atom with a single bond. Distribute remaining electrons as lone pairs on terminal atoms, completing octet around each atom. Place all remaining electrons on the central atom. Rearrange electrons OF outer atoms to make multiple bonds with central atom in order to obtain octets wherever possible. Let us determine Lewis structures OF SiH 4, CHO 2, NO +, and OF 2 as examples in following this procedure: determine the total number OF valence electrons in molecule or ion. For molecule, we add the number OF valence electrons on each atom in molecule: {matheq}\begin{array}{r r l} \text{SiH}_4 & & \ {matheq}1em] & \text{Si: 4 valence electrons/atom} \times 1 \;\text{atom} & = 4 \ {matheq}1em] \rule[-0.5ex]{21em}{0.1ex}\hspace{-21em} + & \text{H: 1 valence electron/atom} \times 4 \;\text{atoms} & = 4 \ {matheq}1em] & & = 8 \;\text{valence electrons} \end{array}{endmatheq} For negative ion, such as CHO 2 −, we add the number OF valence electrons on atoms to the number of negative charges on ion: {matheq}\begin{array}{r r l} {\text{CHO}_2}^{-} & & \ {matheq}1em] & \text{C: 4 valence electrons/atom} \times 1 \;\text{atom} & = 4 \ {matheq}1em] & \text{H: 1 valence electron/atom} \times 1 \;\text{atom} & = 1 \ {matheq}1em] & \text{O: 6 valence electrons/atom} \times 2 \;\text{atoms} & = 12 \ {matheq}1em] \rule[-0.5ex]{21.5em}{0.1ex}\hspace{-21.5em} + & 1\;\text{additional electron} & = 1 \ {matheq}1em] & & = 18 \;\text{valence electrons} \end{array}{endmatheq} For positive ion, such as NO +, we add the number OF valence electrons on atoms in ion and then subtract number OF positive charges on ion from total number OF valence electrons: {matheq}\begin{array}{r r l} \text{NO}^{+} & & \ {matheq}1em] & \text{N: 5 valence electrons/atom} \times 1 \;\text{atom} & = 5 \ {matheq}1em] & \text{O: 6 valence electrons/atom} \times 1 \;\text{atom} & = 6 \ {matheq}1em] \rule[-0.5ex]{21em}{0.1ex}\hspace{-21em} + & -1 \;\text{electron (positive charge)} & = -1 \ {matheq}1em] & & = 10 \;\text{valence electrons} \end{array}{endmatheq} since OF 2 is neutral molecule, We simply add number OF valence electrons: {matheq}\begin{array}{r r l} \text{OF}_{2} & & \ {matheq}1em] & \text{O: 6 valence electrons/atom} \times 1 \;\text{atom} & = 6 \ {matheq}1em] \rule[-0.5ex]{21em}{0.1ex}\hspace{-21em} + & \text{F: 7 valence electrons/atom} \times 2 \;\text{atoms} & = 14 \ {matheq}1em] & & = 20 \;\text{valence electrons} \end{array}{endmatheq} draw skeleton structure OF molecule or ion, arranging atoms around central atom and connecting each atom to central atom with single bond. When several arrangements OF atoms are possible, as for CHO 2 −, we must use experimental evidence to choose the correct one. In general, less electronegative elements are more likely to be central atoms. In CHO 2 −, less electronegative carbon atoms occupy central position with oxygen and hydrogen atoms surrounding them. Other examples include P in POCl 3, S in SO 2, and Cl in ClO 4 −. The exception is that hydrogen is almost never the central atom. Like most electronegative element,ss fluorine also cannot be central atom. Distribute remaining electrons as lone pairs on terminal atoms to complete their valence shells with octet OF electrons. There are NO remaining electrons on SiH 4, SO it is unchanged: Place all remaining electrons on the central atom. For SiH 4, CHO 2 −, and NO +, there are NO remaining electrons; We already place all OF electrons determined in Step 1.
