# Bonding Theories - Weebly Unit 4 BONDING THEORIES VSEPR Theory Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Predicts the shapes of covalent molecules The repulsion between electron pairs causes molecular shapes to adjust so that the valence-electron pairs stay as far apart as possible. O=O O=O

Review what is the electron configuration of Carbon? 1s2 2s2 2p2 The orbital notation is: ____ ____ ____ ____ ____ There are only 2 places for other atoms to bond..but we know carbon can bond with 4

things. So, Carbon will hybridize or move its electrons around to make more available spots for bonding. Hybrid Orbitals Ex. Carbon 2p ___ ___ ___ sp3 ___ ___ ___ ___ 2s ____ 1s ____ Now carbon has 4 available bonding sites, and all are of equal energy.

Hybridization There are 4 possible locations for bonding, or 4 charge clouds. sp3 hybridization can lead to the following types of geometry: Tetrahedral Trigonal Pyramidal Bent Ex. 1 CH4 Hybrid Orbitals example sp3 hybridization Ex 2. NH3

Hybrid Orbital Example Ex 3. Water H20 Draw the Hybrid orbitals Hybrid Orbitals sp2 Hybridization What is the electron configuration for Boron? 1s2 2s2 2p1 How many bonding sites does Boron have? So.the orbitals need to hybridize to reflect the correct number of bonding sites (or charge clouds).

Hybrid Orbitals Ex. BF3 notice that only 2 of the p orbitals hybridize, the 3rd p orbital remains unchanged (and at the higher energy.) Hybrid Orbitals sp Hybridization Can you determine what orbitals will be hybridized? How many charge clouds will there be? Note that the energy is now HIGHER than the s orbital,

but LOWER than the p orbital. Hybrid Orbitals There is currently a debate among scientists as to whether d orbitals hybridize or not. For the AP exam, hybridization of d orbitals is NOT required info. However, it IS important to know how potential d hybridization correlates to molecular geometry. Therefore, we will look at the number of charge clouds (bonds to central atom + lone pairs) and compare that to molecular shapes. Sigma and Pi bonds Single bonds can

also be referred to as sigma bonds. ()) Where the two bonds overlap is the covalent bond where they are sharing electrons. Sigma and Pi Bonds When there is a double (or triple) bond, the 2nd (or 3rd) bonds made are pi () bonds.) bonds. Pi bonds

Sigma and Pi bonds Count ALL the bonds in C2H2 Agenda Check homework Learn how to hybridize orbitals when double and triple bonds are involved Go over homework (as needed) and molecular geometry worksheet from yesterday VSEPR matching in groups Hybridization cont. The first bond that is made is a single (or sigma) bond.

Sigma bonds are made in hybridized orbitals. If a Pi bond is made, it will do so in an unhybridized orbital. Ex. CO2 Hybridization cont. Ex. NO2-
