Stereochemistry the study of the three dimensional shapes of molecules. can be used to explain chemical properties associated with intermolecular attractions Basic approach for molecular structure prediction: 1. Draw the correct Lewis dot structure. – Identify the central atom. – Designate the bonding pairs and lone pairs of electrons on central atom. 2. Count the regions of high electron density on the central atom. – Include both bonding and lone pairs in the counting. 3. Determine the electronic geometry around the central atom. VSEPR is a guide to the geometry. 4. Determine the molecular geometry around the central atom. Ignore the lone pairs of electrons. 5. Adjust molecular geometry for effect of any lone pairs. Basic approach for molecular structure prediction: 6. Determine the hybrid orbitals on central atom. 7. Repeat procedure if there is more than one central atom in molecule. 8. Determine molecular polarity from entire molecular geometry using electronegativity differences. Basic approach for molecular structure prediction: In summary of the approach… Two Simple Theories of Covalent Bonding Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory (VSEPR) – Principal originator: R. J. Gillespie in the 1950’s Valence Bond Theory (VBT) – Principal originator: L. Pauling in the 1930’s-40’s
