Compounds and Their Bonds

Part II:

Covalent Bonding


Covalent Bonds


Covalent Bonds

  • Which elements on the periodic table have a strong pull on electrons?


Covalent Bonds

  • Covalent: “Co-ownership of valence electrons”

  • Unlike ionic bonds, covalent bonding involves sharing of electrons

  • Some common covalent molecules:

    Cl2CO2H2O

    NH3HClCH4

  • What do you notice about the compositions of covalent compounds?


Cl

Cl

How will two chlorine atoms react?


Cl

Cl

Each chlorine atom wants to gain one electron to achieve an octet


Cl

Cl

Neither atom will give up an electron –

chlorine is highly electronegative.

What’s the solution?

What can they do to achieve an octet?


Cl

Cl

octet


Cl

Cl

The octet is achieved by

each atom sharing the

electron pair in the middle


Cl

Cl

The octet is achieved by

each atom sharing the

electron pair in the middle


Cl

This forms an octet


Cl

So does this


Cl

Cl

This is the bonding pair


Cl

Cl

It is called aSINGLE BOND


Cl

Cl

Single bonds are abbreviated with a dash and written as:

Cl2


Covalent Bonds (Diatoms)

Cl2F2H2


O2

Oxygen is also one of the diatomic molecules


O

O

How will two oxygen atoms bond?


O

O

Each atom has two unpaired electrons


O

Oxygen atoms are highly electronegative.

So both atoms want to gain two electrons.

Both electron pairs are shared.


O

O

6 valence electrons

plus 2 shared electrons

= full octet


O

O

6 valence electrons

plus 2 shared electrons

= full octet


O

O

two bonding pairs,

making a doublebond


O

O

=

O

O

For convenience, the double bond

can be shown as two dashes.


This is the oxygen molecule,
