( π Electrons and Diatomics) 1. molecular orbitals a) # of MOs = # of atomic orbitals combined b) bonding MO lower in energy than parent atomic orbitals and antibonding MO higher c) e − ’s assigned to MOs according to Pauli d) most effective combination when atomic orbitals being combined are of similar energy 2. diatomics -homonuclear/heteronuclear a) draw full MO correlation diagram : atomic orbitals of more electronegative element lower in energy MO order for Z ≤ 7, most heteronuclear diatomics
