1 Chemical Bonding (Petrucci Ch 10) Chemical Bonding (Petrucci Ch 10) Covalent Bonding: Covalent Bonding: Electrons are shared between atoms Ionic Bonding: Ionic Bonding: An electrostatic attraction between ions Bonds form so that each atom will have 8 valence electrons (i.e. an octet of electrons.)

2 Lewis Dot Representations Lewis Dot Representations In the Lewis Dot Representation of an atom, the valence electrons of an atom are represented by dots: H •  Cl • • • • •  H has 1 valence electron, Cl has 7 valence electrons Oxygen Phosphorus Calcium Atom Group # valence electrons valence dot symbol

3 Na + Cl • • • • Na + Cl • • • • - The electrostatic attraction between the resulting Na + and Cl - ions is an ionic bond . Ionic Bonds Ionic Bonds Na can lose 1 electron to achieve noble gas electron configuration. Cl can gain one electron to achieve noble gas electron configuration.

4 Covalent Bonds Covalent Bonds Cl • • •  • • 7 valence electrons + Cl • • •  • • 7 valence electrons Shared/Bonding pairs of electrons are designated by a line. Bonding electrons are shared between atoms Bonding Pairs: Pairs of electrons that participate in bonding Cl • • • • Cl • • • • lone pair bonding pair Lone Pairs: Pairs of electrons that do not participate in bonding

6 Exceptions to the Octet Rule Exceptions to the Octet Rule The octet rule applies mainly to 2 nd period elements . Three categories of exceptions to the octet rule: 1) Fewer than 8 valence electrons (incomplete octet) 2) Odd number of electrons 3) More than 8 valence electrons (expanded octet)

Odd-Electron Molecules Odd-Electron Molecules Some molecules are stable even though they contain an odd number of electrons (and thus an incomplete octet). They are called FREE RADICALS
