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 use dots to visually represent Valence Electrons of atom. Lewis symbols are diagrams that represent Valence Electrons of 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.


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 drawn 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. When 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.

Gn Lewis uses dots to represent Valence Electrons in his teaching of chemical bonding. He eventually published his theory of chemical bonding in 1916. He put dots around symbols so that we see Valence Electrons for the main group elements. Formation of chemical bonds to complete the requirement of eight electrons for atom become natural tendency. Lewis Dot symbols of the first two periods are given here to illustrate this point. In fact, entire group of elements have the same Lewis Dot symbols, because they have the same number of Valence Electrons. Lewis Dot structures are useful in explaining chemical bonding in molecules or ions. When several Dot structures are reasonable for molecule or ion, they all contribute to molecular or ionic structure, making it more stable. Representation of molecular or ionic structure by several structures is called resonance. The more stable the Dot structure is, more it contributes to the electronic structure of molecule or ion. You need to know what Dot Structure represent, how to draw them, and what formal charges for atoms in structure are. When several Dot structures are possible, consider resonance structures to interpret real structure. Apply some simple rules to explain which resonance structures are major contributors to electronic structure.

Formal charge rules

The calculation method reviewed above for determining formal charges on atoms is an essential starting point for novice organic chemist, and works well when dealing with small structures. But this method becomes unreasonably time - consuming when dealing with larger structures. It would be exceptionally tedious to determine formal charges on each atom in 2 - deoxycytidine using equation 2. 31 and yet, organic chemists, and especially organic chemists dealing with biological molecules, are expected to draw structures of large molecules such as this on a regular basis. Clearly, you need to develop the ability to quickly and efficiently draw large structures and determine formal charges. Fortunately, this only requires some practice with recognizing common bonding patterns.


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.

Phosphorus pentachloride, PCl 5

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. 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.

Lewis Symbols

We use Lewis Symbols to describe Valence electron configurations of atoms and monatomic ions. The Lewis symbol consists 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.


EXAMPLES

Writing Lewis Structures, NASA's Cassini - Huygens mission detected a large cloud of toxic hydrogen cyanide on Titan, one of Saturn's moons. Titan also contains ethane, acetylene, and ammonia. What are Lewis structures of these molecules? Calculate the number of valence electrons.: + = 10: + = 14: + = 10: + = 8 Draw skeleton and connect atoms with single bonds. Remember that H is never a central atom: Where needed distribute electrons to terminal atoms: six electrons place on: no electrons remain: no terminal atoms capable of accepting electrons: no terminal atoms capable of accepting electrons where needed place remaining electrons on central atom: no electrons remain: no electrons remain: four electrons place on carbon: two electrons place on nitrogen Where need, rearrange electrons to form multiple bonds in order to obtain octet on each atom: form two more C - N bonds: all atoms have correct number of electrons: form triple bond between two carbon atoms: all atoms have correct number of electrons check Your Learning Both carbon monoxide, and carbon dioxide, are products of combustion of fossil fuels. Both of these gases also cause problems: are toxic and have been implicated in global climate change. What are Lewis structures of these two molecules?


Lewis Structures for Polyatomic Ions

We also use Lewis symbols to indicate the 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 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 atom interacts with eight valence electrons: six in lone pairs and two in single bond.


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:

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: Determine 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 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 −. An 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 Determine in Step 1.


Lewis Symbols

At the beginning of the 20th century, American chemist G. N. Lewis devised a system of symbolsnow called Lewis electron Dot Symbols that can be used for predicting the number of bonds formed by most elements in their compounds. Each Lewis Dot symbol consists of a chemical symbol for an element surrounded by dots that represent its valence of electrons. To write Elements Lewis Dot symbol, we place dots representing the valence of electrons, one at time, around Elements chemical symbol. Up to four dots are placed above, below, to the left, and to the right of the symbol. Next, dots, for elements with more than four valence electrons, are again distributed one at time, each pair with one of the first four. For example, electron configuration for atomic sulfur is 3s 2 3p 4, thus there are six valence electrons. Its Lewis symbol would therefore be: fluorine, for example, with electron configuration 2 s 2 2 p 5, has seven valence electrons, so its Lewis Dot symbol is constructed as follow: number of dots in the Lewis Dot symbol is same as the number of valence electrons, which is the same as the last digit of Elements group number in periodic table. Lewis Dot Symbols for Elements in Period 2 are given in Figure 8. 12 Lewis uses unpaired dots to predict the number of bonds that element will form in the compound. Consider the symbol for nitrogen in Figure 8. 12 Lewis Dot symbol explains why nitrogen, with three unpaired valence electrons, tends to form compounds in which it shares unpaired electrons to form three bonds. Boron, which also has three unpaired valence electrons in its Lewis Dot symbol, also tends to form compounds with three bonds, whereas carbon, with four unpaired valence electrons in its Lewis Dot symbol, tends to share all of its unpaired valence electrons by forming compounds in which it has four bonds.

Double and Triple Bonds

Sometimes, atoms share more than one electron and form more than one pair, such as in O 2. In this case, you put four dots between two letters, or two lines to signify two bonds or two pairs of shared electrons. The same would go for three or four pairs. Four pairs, or bonds, are most any two atoms can share. Determine type and number of atoms in molecule. Write Lewis dot structure for each individual atom. Connect atoms by electron pair bonds so that each atom has a full octet. If you have carbon in your molecule, it is always in the middle. Hydrogens are usually on the outside. Double - check your work and make sure every atom has eight electrons and no more. What about CH 4? How would you write that one? Let's go through steps. Determine type and number of atoms in molecule. Write Lewis dot structure for each individual atom. Connect atoms by electron pair bonds so that each atom has a full octet. You put C in the middle and it forms four total bonds, one with each hydrogen atom. Double - check your work and make sure every atom has eight electrons and no more.

Example 1

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 a 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.

Fullerene Chemistry

Carbon soot has been known to man since prehistoric times, but it was not until fairly recently that the molecular structure of the main component of soot was discover. In 1996, Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded to Richard Smalley, Robert Curl, and Harold Kroto for their work in discovering a new form of Carbon, C 60 buckminsterfullerene molecule. Entire classes of compounds, including spheres and tubes of various shapes, were discovered based on C 60. This type of molecule, called fullerene, shows promise in a variety of applications. Because of their size and shape, fullerenes can encapsulate other molecules, so they have shown potential in various applications from hydrogen storage to target drug delivery systems. They also possess unique electronic and optical properties that have been put to good use in solar powered devices and chemical sensors.

Example 2

Periodic table has all of the information needed to draw the Lewis Dot Structure. Each group, or column, is indicated by a roman numeral which represents the number of Valence Electrons. This is applicable to entire group. For example, all elements which fall within the first column, or Group I, have one Valence electron. All elements in Group II have two Valence Electrons, all way up to VIII, eight Valence Electrons. Properties are also consistent across rows, or periods, of periodic table. Periods are indicated by number, 1 2 3, etc. Which represents the energy level, or shell of electrons. The first period, or row, has only one energy level that can hold a total of two electrons. Period 2, with a second shell, can hold a total of eight electrons, also know as the octet rule. Period 3 and so forth can hold more than eight electrons. Periodic tables also convey electronegativity. Most electronegative elements are located in uppermost right corner of the period table and decrease in electronegativity as you go down Group or more left of period. Throughout drawing Lewis Dot Structures, periodic table will be a strong reference point when working with Electrons, covalent bonding, and polyatomic ions. Assume that each outer element has full valence of bonding and non - bonding electrons. Total all of these electrons, and subtract that from the total number of Valence Electrons in the molecule. Co 2 has 16 Valence Electrons. We assume each O has 8 Valence Electrons. 28 = 16; 16 - 16 = 0. Therefore, we do need to add any electrons to C.
