Ele ctr on eg ati vit y Because F (EN = 4.0) is more electronegative than H (EN = 2.2) , the electrons move closer to F . (Table 13.2 - electronegativities) This gives rise to a polar bond: H F Figure 14.45 Electrons are not equally shared in heteronuclear bonds H F

MOs OF XY MOLECULES Equal or unequal e sharing between 2 atoms is reflected in the composition of the MOs: When 2 atoms X and Y have the same electronegativity (purely covalent bond), their overlapping AOs have the same energy , and the bonding and anti- bonding MOs are each half X and half Y AO. All electrons spend equal time near X and Y . Examples : N2, O2, F2 . If EN(Y) > EN(X) ( polar covalent X ˜ + ¸ Y * ), the Y AO has lower energy than the X AO. The bonding MO is more like the Y AO and the anti-bonding MO more like the X AO. Bonding e spend more time near Y than X ; vice versa for anti-bonding e@ . Example : CO .
