Chapter 14: Covalent Bonding: Orbitals Local Electron Model (Valence-Bond Theory) Overlap: The merging of orbitals belonging to different atoms of a molecule. М -bond: Two electrons in a cylindrically symmetrical cloud between two atoms. Nodal Plane: A plane on which electrons will not be found. 1 М -bonds Note: σ -bonds contain no nodal planes along the internuclear axis. Note: The greater the extent of orbital overlap, the stronger the bond.
