81 We have seen how it is most favorable for atoms to have a full outer shell (valence shell) of electrons. This is the driving force for atomic reactivity . Atoms seek to attain this electron configuration - either by losing, gaining or sharing outer shell electrons. The number of outer shell electrons accounts for the observed valence of atoms. Atomic Lewis Symbols: Outer Shell Electron Configuration Observed valence Atomic Lewis Symbol 2s 2p 1 Li 2 Be 3 B 4 C 3 : N 2 : O 1 : F 0 : Ne : excited state configurations allow greater valence & better achieve (on bonding) a full (or almost full valence shell) . . .. .. .. .. .. .

82 Ionic Bonding Atoms to right of the periodic table ( metals ) have few valence electrons, whereas atoms to the left ( nonmetals ) have nearly filled valence shells. It is favorable for the metal to lose its valence electrons to the non-metal to form ions with filled outer shells - octets These ions arrange themselves alternately in a crystal lattice to maximize the electrostatic attraction between the ions of opposite charge, while minimizing the repulsion between ions of the same charge.

83 The cost of forming ions from atoms is the ionization energy of the metal atom (or, eg., the sum of the 1 st & 2 nd ionization energies in the case of forming 2+ ions) minus the electron affinity of the nonmetal atom (or sum of successive electron affinities for multiply negatively charged anions). Low ionization energy of metal + high electron affinity of non-metal makes ionic bond formation favorable. There are other contributing terms (i.e. contributing to H ° f of ionic solid ) . .. we must break bonds of elemental materials to form ionic compound from elements having produced gaseous ions, there is a "lattice energy", H ° lattice , associated with the electrostatic forces between ions - attractive forces emphasized over repulsive

84 Lattice Energy The lattice energy. .. increases with increasing charge on ions decreases with increasing distance between ions (sum of ionic radii ) E = k q + q - /r Of course, the lattice energy is more complex involving a sum over all pairs of ions in the crystal. But, the electrostatic attraction between neighboring ions of opposite charge gives the right trends. eg. MgCl 2 2527 kJ/mol Na 2 O 2570 kJ/mol MgO 3890 kJ/mol

85 Covalent Bonding Bonding between non-metal atoms requires both atoms attempting to complete their octets . This is possible if the atoms share some of their valence electrons - the covalent bond . .. eg. : F + F : : F : F : : F F : .. .. .. .. .. .. lone pair of electrons covalent bond pair of electrons .. .. .. .. .. ..
