Lewis uses simple diagrams to keep track of how many electrons were present in the outermost, or Valence, shell of the atom. The kernel of an atom, ie, nucleus together with inner electrons, is represented by a chemical symbol, and only Valence Electrons are drawn as dots surrounding the chemical symbol. Thus, three atoms shown in Figure 1 from Electrons and Valence can be represented by the following Lewis diagrams: if an atom is a noble - gas atom, two alternative procedures are possible. Either we can consider an atom to have zero Valence electrons or we can regard the outermost fill shell as a Valence shell. The first three noble gases can thus be written as: notice from the preceding example that Lewis diagrams of alkali metals are identical except for their chemical symbols. This agrees nicely with the very similar chemical behavior of alkali metals. Similarly, Lewis diagrams for all elements in other groups, such as alkaline earths or halogens, look the same. Lewis diagrams may also be used to predict valences of elements. Lewis suggested that the number of valences of an atom was equal to the number of Electrons in its Valence shell or to the number of Electrons which would have to be added to the Valence shell to achieve the electronic shell structure of the next noble gas. As an example of this idea, consider the elements Be and O. Their Lewis diagrams and those of noble gases He and Ne are compared to Be with He, We see that the former has two more Electrons and therefore should have Valence of 2. Element O might be expected to have Valence of 6 or Valence of 2 since it has six Valence electronstwo less than Ne. Using rules of Valence developed in this way, Lewis was able to account for the regular increase and decrease in subscripts of compounds in the table found in the Valence section, and reproduce them here. In addition, he was able to account for more than 50 percent of formulas in the table. Lewis ' success in this connection gives clear indication that electrons were the most important factor in holding atoms together when molecules form. Despite these successes, there are also difficulties to be found in Lewis theories, in particular for elements beyond calcium in the periodic table. Element Br, for example, has 17 more Electrons than noble - gas Ar. This leads us to conclude that Br has 17 Valence Electrons, which makes it awkward to explain why Br resembles Cl and F so closely even though these two atoms have only seven Valence Electrons. Draw Lewis diagrams for atom of each of the following elements: Li, N, F, Na. We find from the periodic table inside the front cover that Li has an atomic number of 3. It thus contains three electrons, one more than noble gas He.

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.

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 −. 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 determined in Step 1.

Fullerene Chemistry

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 group 14 elements 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:
