    Chapter 9:  Bonding -  Orbitals 1. Valence Bond Theory a. Hybrid Orbitals b.   σ  and  π  bonds c. cis/trans isomerism d. Uses for VBT (VBT is accurate for predicting molecular shapes, bond  angles, and bond rotation) 2. Molecular Orbital Theory a. Predicting shapes and relative energies of MO’s from AO’s b. Using MO theory to predict bond order, para/diamagnetism, electron  configurations, relative stability of diatomic molecules c. Uses for MO theory (MO theory is the most accurate way to predict  electronic properties like electron energies and the properties listed in 2b  above) 3. Combining MO theory and VBT for molecules with resonance.
