Intermolecular Forces • Every gas liquifies. • Long-range attractive forces overcome thermal dispersion at low temperature. ( Tboil ) • At lower T still, intermolecular potentials are lowered further by solidification. ( Tfusion ) • Since pressure influences gas density, it also influences the T at which these condensations occur. • What are the natures of the attractive forces?
London Dispersion Forces • AKA: induced-dipole-induced-dipole forces • Electrons in atoms and molecules can be polarized by electric fields to varying extents. • Natural electronic motion in neighboring atoms or molecules set up instantaneous dipole fields. • Target molecule’s electrons anticorrelate with those in neighbors, giving an opposite dipole. • Those quickly-reversing dipoles still attract.
Induced Dipolar Attraction +••••••– –••••••+ • Strengths of dipolar interaction proportional to charge and distance separated. • So weakly-held electrons are vulnerable to induced dipoles. He tight but Kr loose. • Also l o n g molecules permit charge to separate larger distances, which promotes stronger dipoles. Size matters.
Permanent Dipoles • Non-polar molecules bind exclusively by London potential R–6 (short-range) • True dipolar molecules have permanently shifted electron distributions which attract one another strongly R–4 (longer range). • Gaseous ions have strongest, longest range attraction (and repulsion) potentials R–2. • Size being equal, boiling Tpolar > Tnon-polar
Strongest Dipoles • “Hydrogen bonding” potential occurs when H is bound to the very electronegative atoms of N, O, or F. • So H2O ought to boil at about – 50°C save for the hydrogen bonds between neighbor water molecules. • It’s normal boiling point is 150° higher!
The Liquid State (Hawaii?) • The most complex of all phases. • Characterized by • Fluidity (flow, viscosity, turbulence) • Only short-range ordering (solvation shells) • Surface tension (beading, meniscus, bubbles) • Bulk molecules bind in all directions but unfortunate surface ones bind only hemispherically. • Missing attractions makes surface creation costly.
Type of Solids • While solids are often highly ordered structures, glass is more of a frozen fluid. • Glass is an amorphous solid. “without shape” • In crystalline solids, atoms occupy regular array positions save for occasional defects. • Array composed by stacking of the smallest unit cell capable of reproducing full lattice.
Types of Lattices • While there are quite a few Point Groups and hundreds of 2D wallpaper arrangments, there are only SEVEN 3D lattice types. • Isometric (cubic), Tetragonal, Orthorhombic, Monoclinic, Triclinic, Hexagonal, and Rhombohedral. • They differ in the size and angles of the axes of the unit cell. Only these 7 will fill in 3D space.
Isometric (cubic) • Cubic unit cell axes are all • THE SAME LENGTH • MUTUALLY PERPENDICULAR • E.g.,“Fools Gold” is iron pyrite, FeS2, an unusual +4 valence.
Tetragonal • Tetragonal cell axes: • MUTUALLY PERPENDICULAR • 2 SAME LENGTH • E.g., Zircon, ZrSiO4. This white zircon is a Matura Diamond, but only 7.5 hardness. • Real diamond is 10. Diamonds are not tetragonal but rather face-centered cubic.
Orthorhombic • Orthorhombic axes: • MUTUALLY PERPENDICULAR • NO 2 THE SAME LENGTH • E.g., Aragonite, whose gem form comes from the secretion of oysters; it’s CaCO3.
Monoclinic • Monoclinic cell axes: • UNEQUAL LENGTH • 2 SKEWED but PERPENDICULAR TO THE THIRD • E.g., Selenite (trans. “the Moon”) a fully transparent form of gypsum, CaSO4•2H2O
Triclinic • Triclinic cell axes: • ALL UNEQUAL • ALL OBLIQUE • E.g., Albite, colorless, glassy component of this feldspar, has a formula NaAlSi3O8. • Silicates are the most common minerals.
Hexagonal • Hexagonal cell axes: • 3 EQUAL C2 • PERPENDICULAR TO A C6 • E.g., Beryl, with gem form Emerald and formula Be3Al2(SiO3)6 • Diamonds are cheaper than perfect emeralds.
_ 3 Rhombohedral • Rhombohedral axis: • CUBE stretched (or squashed) along its diagonal. (a=b=c) • DIAGONAL is bar 3 • “rotary inversion” • E.g., Quartz, SiO2, the base for amethyst with it purple color due to an Fe impurity.

Classes • Although there’s only 7 crystal systems, there are 14 lattices, 32 classes which can span 3D space, and 230 crystal symmetries. • Only 12 are routinely observed. • Classes within a system differ in the symmetrical arrangement of points inside the unit cube. • Since it is the atoms that scatter X-rays, not the unit cells, classes yield different X-ray patterns.
Simple cubic “Primitive” P Body-centered cubic “Interior” I Face-centered cubic “Faces” F “Capped” C if only on 2 opposing faces. BCC FCC Common Cubic Classes
Materials Density • Density of materials is mass per unit volume. • Unit cells have dimensions and volumes. • Their contents, atoms, have mass. • So density of a lattice packing is easily obtained from just those dimensions and the masses of THE PORTIONS OF atoms actually WITHIN the unit cell.
INTERIOR atoms count in their entirety. FACE atoms count for only the ½ inside. EDGE atoms count for only the ¼ inside. CORNER atoms are only 1/8 inside. Counting Atoms in Unit Cells

capped Bravais Lattices • 7 lattice systems + P, I, F, C options • P: atoms only at the corners. • I: additional atom in center. • C: pair of atoms “capping” opposite faces. • F: atoms centered in all faces. • Totals 14 types of unit cells from which to “tile” a crystal in 3d, the Bravais Lattices. • Adding point symmetries yields 230 space groups.
– – New Names for Symmetry Elements • What we learned as Cn (rotation by 360°/n), is now called merely n. 3’s a 3-fold axis. • Reflections used to be but now they’re m (for mirror). So mmm means 3 mirrors. • In point symmetry, Snwas 360°/n and then but now it is just n, still a 360°/n but now followed by an inversion (which is now 1).
Triclinic: All 7 lattice systems have centrosymmetry, e.g., corner, edge, face, & center inversion pts! Designation: 1 These are inversion points only because the crystal is infinite! While all 7 have these, triclinic hasn’t other symmetry operations. It’s 1 meansinversion. Triclinic Lattice Designation – –
The principal rotation axes are “4”, but it is the four3axes that are identifying for cubes. The 4–fold axes have an m to each. Each 3–fold axis has a trio of m in which it lies. All 3 to be shown. The cube is m3m All its other symmetries are implied by these. Cubic (isometric) Designation 3 m m
The Three Cubic Lattices • Where before we called them simple, body-centered, and face-centered cubics, the are now P m3m, I m3m, and F m3m, resp. • The cubic has the highest and the triclinic the lowest symmetry. The rest of the Bravais Lattices fall in between. • We will designate only their primitive cells. • It will help when we get to a real crystal.
Orthorhombicall 90° but a b c. Trivial. It’s mmm because: Rhombohedral all s= but 90°; a=b=c It’s 3m because: – 3 Ortho vs. Merely Rhombic – m
Tetragonal all 90° and a=b c Principle axis is 4 which is m But it is also || to mm So it is designated as 4/mmm Abbreviated 4/mmm Last of the Great Rectangles 4 m m m
Monoclinic a b c == 90° < Then b is a 2-fold axis and to m So it is 2/m b is a 2 because the crystal is infinite. Nature’s Favorite for Organics m 2

X-ray Crystal Determination • Since crystals are so regular, planes with atoms (electrons) to scatter radiation can be found at many angles and many separations. • Those separations, d, comparable to , the wavelength of incident radiation, diffract it most effectively. • The patterns of diffraction are characteristic of the crystal under investigation!
X-rays have d. X-rays mirror reflect from adjacent planes in the crystal. If the longer reflection exceeds the shorter by n, they reinforce. If by (n+½), cancel! 2d sin = n, Bragg d Diffraction’s Source reinforced d sin
Relating Cell Contents to • Atomic positions replicate from cell to cell. • Reflection planes through them can be drawn once symmetries are known. • Directions of the planes are determined by replication distances in (inverse) cell units. • Interplane distance, d, is a function of the direction indices (Miller indices).
The index for a full cell move along axis b is 1. Its inverse is 1. That for ½ a cell on b is ½. Its inverse is 2. Intersect on a parallel axis is ! Its inverse makes more sense, 0. Shown is (3,2,0) b/2 a/3 Inverse Distances c a b

Systematic Extinctions • Both space symmetries and Bravais lattice types kill offsome Miller Index triples! • Use missing triples to find P, F, C, I • E.g., if odd sums h+k+l are missing, the unit cell is body-centered and must be I. • Use them to find glide planes and screw axes. • E.g., if all oddh is missing from (h,k,0) reflections, then there is an a glide (by ½) c. • http://tetide.geo.uniroma1.it/ipercri/crix/struct.htm

Alloys (vary properties of metals) • Substitutional • Heteroatoms swap originals, e.g., Cu/Sn (bronze) • Intersticial • Smaller interlopers fit in interstices (voids) of metal structure, e.g., Fe/C (steels) • Mixed • Substitutional and intersticial in same metal alloy, e.g., Fe/Cr/C (chrome steels)

Equilibrium Vapor Pressure, Peq • At a given P,T, the partial pressure of vapor above a volatile condensed phase. • If two condensed phases present, e.g., solid and liquid, the one with the lower Peq will be the more thermodynamically stable. • The more volatile phase will lose matter by gas transfer to the less (more stable) one because such equilibrium are dynamic!
