Electronegativity Each element has a pull for the electrons that it shares with another atom. This pull is referred to as electronegativity. Electronegativity increases going up and to the right on the Periodic Table.

Bond Polarity: Differences in the electronegativities of the atoms sharing a pair of electrons implies unequal sharing. The shared electrons will spent a greater proportion of time around the more electronegative atom.

Bond Polarity and Molecular Polarity: A polar bond has a dipole-moment , which is a vector quantity, has magnitude and direction. μ = δ x d , where δ is the size of the charge at one end of the polar bond and d is the distance separating the two charges. The direction of the dipole-moment is from the positive end to the negative end of the polar bond.

Bond Polarity: The more electronegative atom becomes more negative. The less electronegative atom becomes more positive. H Cl 2.2 3.2 H Cl δ+ δ- δ - indicates a partial charge due to unequal sharing of electrons

Dipoles: A polar bond is an instance of a dipole: Dipole: two opposite charges separated by a distance. Dipoles are often depicted by a dipole arrow. Starts with a plus (+) and extents to a point pointing to the negative end of the dipole. H Cl 2.2 3.2 H Cl δ + δ- H Cl

Formal Charges: Electron “book-keeping” for an atom. If an atom loses an electron, it increases it charge by one. If an atom gains an electron, it deceases it charge by one.

Formal Charges: If an atom uses an unpaired electron to form a covalent bond, no change in charge. (Why?) If an atom uses a lone pair of electrons to form a covalent bond, it increases it charges by one. (Why?)

Formal Charge: If an atom accepts an electron pair to form a covalent bond, it decreases it charge by one. (Why?) All of the above changes can be accommodated by the formula: F.C.= # of Valence Electrons - #of Bonds - #of Unshared Electrons

Formal Charges: H N H H H For N: 5 - 4 - 0 = 1 For H: 1 - 1 - 0 = 0 So the nitrogen has a positive formal charge while the hydrogens are formally neutral.
