Introduction to chemical bonding l.jpg
Introduction to chemical bonding

  • What is a chemical bond???

    A mutual electrical attraction between the nuclei and valence electrons of different atoms that binds the atoms together

Introduction to chemical bonding5 l.jpg
Introduction to chemical bonding

  • Why do atoms bond?

    They are working to achieve more stable arrangements where the bonded atoms will have lower potential energy than they do when existing as individual atoms.

Introduction to chemical bonding

  • Types of Chemical Bonding:

    1. Ionic – an electrical attraction that forms between cations (+) and anions (-)

    2. Covalent – are formed when electrons are shared between atoms

    3. Metallic – formed by many atoms sharing many electrons

Introduction to chemical bonding7 l.jpg
Introduction to chemical bonding

  • However….

    • Bonds are never purely covalent or purely ionic.

    • The degree of ionic-ness or covalent-ness depends on property of electronegativity.

Introduction to chemical bonding9 l.jpg
Introduction to chemical bonding

  • Recall what electronegativity is:

    The degree of attraction that an atom has to electrons that are within a bonded compound.

    (see page 161)

Introduction to chemical bonding10 l.jpg
Introduction to chemical bonding

  • To determine the degree of ionic-ness or covalent-ness you must take each of the electronegativities for the elements in the compound and subtract them.

Introduction to chemical bonding

  • If difference is 0-0.3 = nonpolar covalent

  • If difference is 0.3 – 1.7 = polar covalent

  • 1.7 and above = Ionic

Polar Covalent

2.5 - 0.7 = 1.8


2.5 – 3.0 = 0.5

Polar Covalent

  • Sulfur + Hydrogen

  • Sulfur + Cesium

  • Sulfur + Chlorine

Introduction to chemical bonding14 l.jpg
Introduction to chemical bonding Differences

  • In general however…

    If bonding elements are on opposite sides of the periodic table then they tend to be ionic.

    If elements are close together, then they tend to be covalent.

Section 2: Differences

  • Covalent Bonding & Molecular Compounds

Covalent bonding l.jpg
Covalent Bonding Differences

  • What is a molecule?

    A neutral group of atoms that are held together by covalent bonds.

  • May be different atoms such as H2O or C6H12O6

  • May be the same atoms such as O2

Covalent bonding18 l.jpg
Covalent Bonding Differences

  • Molecular compounds are made of molecules ….. Not ions!

  • We represent molecular compounds by chemical formulas that show numbers of atoms of each kind of element in the compound. CH4 - methane

Covalent bonding19 l.jpg
Covalent Bonding Differences

  • Diatomic molecules are those elements that exist in pairs of like atoms that are bonded together.

  • There are 7 diatomic molecules:

    H2 N2 O2 F2 Cl2 I2 Br2

Covalent bonding20 l.jpg
Covalent Bonding Differences

Formation of a covalent bond:

  • When atoms are far apart they do not attract – potential energy is zero.

  • As they come closer the electrons are attracted to protons but electrons and electrons repel – but e- to p attraction is stronger!

Covalent bonding21 l.jpg
Covalent Bonding Differences

  • The electron clouds of the bonded atoms are overlapped and form a “bond length.”

Covalent bonding22 l.jpg
Covalent Bonding Differences

  • Energy is released when these atoms join together with a bond.

  • Energy must be added to separatethese atoms – called bond energies.

  • Bond energy is expressed in kilojoules per mole.

Covalent bonding23 l.jpg
Covalent Bonding Differences

  • Octet Rule – Atoms will either gain, lose, or share electrons so that their outer energy levels will contain eight electrons (H is an exception since it can only have 2 in the outer level).

  • These electrons that are being gained, lost, or shared are represented by using the electron dot diagrams.

Examples of electron dot notations l.jpg
Examples of Differenceselectron dot notations

  • 1 valence electron

  • 3 valence electrons

  • 5 valence electrons

  • 7 valance electrons





Covalent bonding25 l.jpg
Covalent Bonding Differences

  • Shared electron pairs and unshared pairs:

    Cl:Cl Shared pair

    Unshared pairs

Covalent bonding31 l.jpg
Covalent Bonding Differences

  • Some atoms can form multiple bonds – especially C, O, & N.

  • Double bonds are bonds that share 2 pair of electrons

    C=C means C::C

  • Triple bonds share 3 pair

    C≡C means C:::C

Covalent bonding32 l.jpg
Covalent Bonding Differences

  • Resonance:

  • Some substances cannot be drawn correctly with Lewis structure diagrams

  • Some electrons share time with other atoms – ex. Ozone – O3

Covalent bonding33 l.jpg
Covalent Bonding Differences

  • Electrons in ozone may be represented as: O = O–O

  • Other times it may be represented as O–O=O

  • Actually these structures are shared – electrons “resonate” (go back & forth) between them

Section 4 l.jpg
Section 4: Differences

  • Metallic Bonding

Metallic bonding l.jpg
Metallic Bonding Differences

  • Metals are excellent electrical conductors in the solid state.

  • This is due to highly mobile valence electrons that travel from atom to atom.


Metallic bonding46 l.jpg
Metallic Bonding Differences

  • Generally metals have either 1 or 2 s electrons

  • p orbitals are vacant

  • Many are filling in the d level

  • Electrons become delocalized and move between atoms

Metallic bonding47 l.jpg
Metallic Bonding Differences

  • A metallic bond is the mutual sharing of many electrons among many atoms.

  • Electrons travel in what is known as the zone of conduction.

Metallic properties l.jpg
Metallic Properties Differences

  • High electrical conductivity

  • High thermal conductivity

  • High luster

  • Malleable (can be hammered or pressed into shape)

  • Ductile (capable of being drawn or extruded through small openings to produce a wire)

Metallic bond strength l.jpg
Metallic Bond Strength Differences

  • Varies with nuclear charge and number of electrons shared.

  • High bond strengths result in high heats of vaporization (when metals are changed into gaseous phase)

Section 5 l.jpg
Section 5: Differences

  • Molecular Geometry

Molecular geometry l.jpg
Molecular geometry… Differences

  • A molecule’s properties depend on bonding of atoms, but also the molecular geometry.

  • Is the three dimensional arrangement of a molecule’s atoms in space.

Vsepr theory l.jpg
VSEPR Theory Differences

  • Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion

  • Electrons around a nucleus repel each other to be as far away from each other as possible.

Vsepr theory54 l.jpg
VSEPR Theory Differences

  • AB2 forms linear molecule as with beryllium

    However, water (H2O) is bent due to electrons repulsion!

Vsepr theory55 l.jpg
VSEPR Theory Differences

  • AB3 forms trigonal planar molecule-ex. ammonia

  • AB4 forms tetrahedral molecule ex. methane

  • See page 200 for other shapes

Hybridization l.jpg
Hybridization Differences

  • Explains how atom’s orbitals become rearranged to form covalent bonds.

  • Hybridization is the mixing of 2 or more orbitals of similar energies on the same atom to produce new orbitals of equal energies.

Hybridization57 l.jpg
Hybridization Differences

  • Methane (CH4) is an example of hybridization:

    • Carbon’s normal configuration is 2s22p2

    • In methane all the electrons in the 2nd energy level become equal in energy and is referred to as sp3

Intermolecular forces l.jpg
Intermolecular Forces: Differences

  • What happens to liquid molecules when they are heated?

  • As energy is added particles overcome their attraction to each other.

  • IM Forces are the forces of attraction between molecules – not within the molecule.

  • IM forces vary in strength but are weaker than bonds that join atoms

Intermolecular forces59 l.jpg
Intermolecular Forces: Differences

  • Strongest IM forces exist in polar molecules.

  • Polar molecules act as tiny “dipoles” (equal & opposite charges separated by short distances)

Intermolecular forces60 l.jpg
Intermolecular Forces: Differences

  • Dipole – dipole forces attract between molecules such as between two water molecules.

  • Positive H region is attracted to negative O region of a different molecule.

Intermolecular forces61 l.jpg
Intermolecular Forces: Differences

  • Another IM force is Hydrogen bonding.

  • Is a strong type of dipole-dipole force

  • Explains high boiling points of H-containing substances such as water and ammonia

Intermolecular forces62 l.jpg
Intermolecular Forces: Differences

  • In hydrogen bonding, a hydrogen atom is attracted to an unshared pair of electrons of an electronegative atom in a nearby molecule.

  • The double helix of DNA is held together by hydrogen bonding.

Intermolecular forces63 l.jpg
Intermolecular Forces: Differences

London Dispersion forces:

  • Are very weak bonds

  • Occur due to the fact that since electrons are in constant motion that briefly there are moments where electrons are unevenly distributed and thus the molecule briefly has a charged area.
