Presentation Transcript
1. Ch. 8 – Molecular Structure Molecular Geometry(p. 232 – 236)

2. A. VSEPR Theory • Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory • Electron pairs orient themselves in order to minimize repulsive forces

3. Lone pairs repel more strongly than bonding pairs!!! A. VSEPR Theory • Types of e- Pairs • Bonding pairs – form bonds • Lone pairs – nonbonding e- • Total e- pairs– bonding + lone pairs

4. Bond Angle Bond Angle A. VSEPR Theory • Lone pairs reduce the bond angle between atoms

5. Know the 13 common shapes & their bond angles! B. Determining Molecular Shape • Draw the Lewis Diagram • Tally up e- pairs on central atom (bonds + lone pairs) • double/triple bonds = ONE pair • Shape is determined by the # of bonding pairs and lone pairs

21. E. Hybridization • Provides information about molecular bonding and molecular shape • Several atomic orbitals mix to form same total of equivalent hybrid orbitals

22. E. Hybridization • Carbon is common example (orbital diagram) • One of 2s electrons is promoted to 2p • 4 identical orbitals form sp3 hybridization

23. Remember the subscript is the orbital, not e- configuration! E. Hybridization • Other types of hybridization • Be – 2 ve- forms sp • Al – 3 ve- forms sp2 • Si – 4 ve- forms sp3 • Kr – 8 ve- forms dsp3 • S – 6 ve- forms d2sp3 exceptions

24. F. Hybridization Example • Compare shapes and hybrid orbitals: PF3 PF5
