Lectures 21-22 Solid state materials. Electronic structure and conductivity 1) Band theory. The electronic structure of solids can also be described by MO theory. A solid can be considered as a supermolecule .
Consider qualitatively bonding between Nmetal atoms of ns1 configuration (Li, Na etc) arranged in a chain; N = 2, 4, NA. Assume that X=1 for simplicity.
5) Bonding in solids: Crystal Orbital Overlap Population
7) The Peierls distortion
8)Band structure of one dimensional polymers: a stack of PtII square planar complexes
9) Forming bands: Principles
10) How bands behave
11) Band structure of a stacked [PtH4]2-
12) Bonding and conductivity in stacked [PtH4]2-
