Description of TermTerm
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 description of bonding that combines atomic orbitals from each bondedatom to produce a set of molecular orbitals.
A mathematical formula whose consequence is that negatively and positively charged particles attract each other and similarly charged species repel each other.
The direction and magnitude of the charge separation in 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.
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.
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.
That which holds together atoms in molecules and ions in lattices.
The difference between the number of bonding electron pairs an the number of antibonding electron pairs in a molecule.
A positively charged ion.
A charged species created by the gain or loss of an electron from an atom or neutral molecule.
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.
A chemical species containing a covalent bond.
The distance between bonded nuclei.
A nonbonding pair of electrons.
A measure of how well two orbitals constructively interfere with one another.
Description of TermTerm
The amount of energy necessary to break a bond. This energy is a measure of how hard it is to break a bond.
The charge on an atom in a molecule.
A bond that results from a sharing of electrons between nuclei.
An electron configuration with a full valence shell.
One of several Lewis structures whose average represents an accurate depiction of the molecule not properly represented by one simple Lewis structure.
An electron configuration with a partially filled valence shell.
A negatively charged ion.
A regularly repeating three-dimensional array of atoms, molecules, or ions.
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.
The orbitals with the highest occupied principle quantum number.
A bond that results from electrostatic attraction between oppositely charged ions. The cation is positively charged, while the anion is negatively charged.
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.
Discussed in Molecular Orbital Theory, Heading , such diagrams show the relative energy and the parentage of molecular orbitals from atomic orbitals.
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.
