CHEM 2311 B Topic 1 slide 1 TOPIC 1. STRUCTURE AND BONDING (Chapter 1) These packages of notes are designed for use in conjunction with CHEM 2311 lectures. If you miss a lecture, get the completed notes from another student. Reading assignments (from Solomons) are given in the top right corner ( S:#-# ), along with relevant problems from the end of the chapter. L CHEM 2311 B Topic 1 slide 2 OBJECTIVES 1. Introduction to organic chemistry and review of terms 1. Describe distribution of electrons in organic molecules (atomic electronic configurations, Lewis structures, resonance) 2. Describe bonding C-C and C-H bonds in organic molecules (hybridization, overlap of atomic orbitals). 3. Describe molecular geometry.

CHEM 2311 B Topic 1 slide 3 SOME BASIC STRUCTURAL FEATURES Empirical Formula - Ratio of atoms in a compound. Molecular Formula - Number of each atom in a molecule. Valency - Elements form a fixed number of bonds (H 1, O 2, N 3, C 4). Structure - Arrangement of atoms and bonds in a molecule. Isomers - Different compounds with the same molecular formula. Constitutional isomers - Compounds with the same formula, but with different connectivity of atoms.

Li + F Li + F Ionic bonds are typically formed between atoms which are highly electronegative and highly electropositive Prob: 1.17-19 He Ne Ar S:1.4-1.7
