Description of TermTerm
A mathematical formula whose consequence is that negatively and positively charged particles attract each other and similarly charged species repel each other.
One of several Lewis structures whose average represents an accurate depiction of the molecule not properly represented by one simple Lewis structure.
The direction and magnitude of the charge separation in a bond.
The three dimensional structure and orientation of the atoms, bonds, and lone pairs in a molecule.
A measure of the ability of an atom to attract electrons to itself.
A molecular orbital that results from an in-phase overlap of atomic orbitals that has a lower energy than either of its parent atomic orbitals.
A regularly repeating three-dimensional array of atoms, molecules, or ions.
The orbitals with the highest occupied principle quantum number.
An electron configuration with a partially filled valence shell.
A bond that results from electrostatic attraction between oppositely charged ions. The cation is positively charged, while the anion is negatively charged.
A charged species created by the gain or loss of an electron from an atom or neutral molecule.
The charge on an atom in a molecule.
A combination of atomic orbitals in molecular orbital theory that provides an orbital description of a molecule analogous to the atomic orbital description of atoms.
A nonbonding pair of electrons.
A measure of how well two orbitals constructively interfere with one another.
An electron configuration with a full valence shell.
Description of TermTerm
The difference between the number of bonding electron pairs an the number of antibonding electron pairs in a molecule.
A chemical species containing a covalent bond.
A molecular orbital that results from an out-of-phase overlap of atomic orbitals to produce an orbital that is higher in energy than either of its parent molecular orbitals.
That which holds together atoms in molecules and ions in lattices.
A bond that results from a sharing of electrons between nuclei.
A description of bonding that combines atomic orbitals from each bondedatom to produce a set of molecular orbitals.
A description of a covalent bond whereby electrons are represented by dots and a bond is represented by placing a line between the two atoms in that bond.
The distance between bonded nuclei.
Eight electrons. For atoms other than H, the valence shell is filled with eight electrons. A filled valence gives the molecule a noble gas configuration and renders it stable.
The process by which atomic orbitals are combined to produce a new set of orbitals suitable for use in a discussion of bonding in polynuclear atoms.
A positively charged ion.
The amount of energy necessary to break a bond. This energy is a measure of how hard it is to break a bond.
A theory used to predict bonding geometries that states that electron pairs will be distributed about the central atom to minimize electron pair repulsions.
Discussed in Molecular Orbital Theory, Heading , such diagrams show the relative energy and the parentage of molecular orbitals from atomic orbitals.
A negatively charged ion.
