MO Diagram for Li 2 The 1s electrons are core electrons for Li, with the valence shell for the Li atom being 2s: 1s 2 2s 1 1s 2 2s 1 Core orbitals are not involved with bonding Valence orbitals overlap and are involved with bonding

Bonding with the p‐Block Atoms The bonding picture with the p-block atoms (B Ne) is more complicated due to electrons residing in the p-orbitals B: 1s 2 2s 2 2p 1 C: 1s 2 2s 2 2p 2 N: 1s 2 2s 2 2p 3 O: 1s 2 2s 2 2p 4 F: 1s 2 2s 2 2p 5 Ne: 1s 2 2s 2 2p 6 Along with the orbital overlap of the 2s orbitals, we need to account for bonding between the p-orbitals

Unformatted text preview: Internuclear approach is along the z axis z Resulting Sigma Bonding MO ( 2p ) Sigma Bond MOs Between P Orbitals Note where the nuclei are, and this MO has two nodes 2p z- 2p z orbital overlap is in-phase z 2p z + 2p z atomic orbitals Overlap is out-of-phase Sigma Antibond Formation ( 2p * ) Resulting 2p * antibonding molecular orbital 2p + 2p Wave functions that are out-of-phase interact to give antibonding molecular orbitals. Here, we show the interaction of two 2p z atomic orbitals (2p z + 2p z ) to form the 2p * MO. Z axis Z Z 2p * There are three pairs of p orbitals and thus six MOs, a s, s*, 2 x p and 2 x p* 6 p AOs Combine to Make 6 MOs The 2 bonding 2p orbitals are degenerate (same energy) Why? The 2 antibonding * 2p orbitals are degenerate (same energy) Why? The Expected MO Diagram for B 2...
