Mary J. Bojan Chem 110 2 Molecular Orbitals Lewis structures : accounting for bonding and lone-pair electrons (where are the electrons?) VSEPR: Electron-pair structure, spatial distribution of electrons (3D) How are bonds made? We know electron distribution in atoms: atomic orbitals: ( s , p , d ) What is the electron distribution in molecules? Two models: Valence Bond Theory Valence orbitals on one atom overlap with valence orbitals on another atom: this overlap of orbitals is a covalent bond . Molecular Orbital Theory Covered in Chem 112
