2 Molecular Geometry

3 The Valence-Shell Electron-Pair Repulsion (VSEPR) Method based on the idea that pairs of valence electrons in bonded atoms repel one another. Assumes electron pairs try to get as far apart as possible Each electron pair or bond takes up ~ same amount of space # of bonds or pairs determines molecular geometry Molecular Geometry: The shape of a molecule that describes the location of nuclei & the connections between them.

4 Molecules with No Lone Pairs Orientation due to number of repulsions Bond angles based on electron group geometry 2 electron groups - linear AB 2 180º 3 electron groups - trigonal planar AB 3 120º 4 electron groups - tetrahedral AB 4 109.5º 5 electron groups - trigonal bipyramidal AB 5 6 electron groups - octahedral AB 6 Expanded Valence Shell Valence electrons > 8 AB 5 and AB 6 Central atom is group 3 or higher. (d electrons)

6 Molecules with Lone Pairs Lone pair electrons not seen but take up space Act as “invisible bond” Count electrons as E’s Single, double or triple bonds count as 1 bond To determine molecular geometry Add up all the B’s and E’s on the molecule AB 2 E 2 The sum equals number of spaces needed 2B + 2E = 4 # spaces = 4 Match to table of geometries without lone pairs 4 spaces - tetrahedral AB 4 H O H - - B A B - -
