Molecular Orbital Theory C bi ti f t i bit l diff t t f Combination of atomic orbitals on different atoms forms molecular orbitals (MO’s) so that electrons in MO’s belong to the molecule as a whole. Waves that describe atomic orbitals have both positive and negative phases or amplitudes. As MO’s are formed the phases can interact constructively or As MO s are formed the phases can interact constructively or destructively. 3
