DRAFT (Chap 5, Part B) Page 1 A coordinate covalent bond is formed when both electrons of the bonding electron pair shared by two atoms are provided by the same atom. PCl 3 vs. POCl 3 Resonance Structures (sometimes there is more than one structure that will satisfy the octet rule). Resonance structures have delocalized electrons. O 3 SO 3

DRAFT (Chap 5, Part B) Page 2 Benzene Determining Molecular Geometry (Shapes) Electron pairs do NOT like to share space with other electron pairs and they will move away as best they can to obtain as much “personal space” as possible. ►An electron pair can be in a bond. ►An electron pair can be a “lone pair” (nonbonding) Draw Cl 2 Draw H 2 O Draw CO 2

DRAFT (Chap 5, Part B) Page 3 Valence-Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory (VSEPR Theory) Electron domains around an atom want to maximize their personal space. A lone pair of electrons is ONE electron domain The two electrons in a single bond are ONE electron domain The four electrons in a double bond are ONE electron domain The six electrons in a triple bond are ONE electron domain
