The Central Themes of VB Theory Basic Principle A covalent bond forms when the orbitals of two atoms overlap and are occupied by a pair of electrons that have the highest probability of being located between the nuclei. Themes A set of overlapping orbitals has a maximum of two electrons that must have opposite spins . The greater the orbital overlap, the stronger (more stable) the bond. Maximum overlap of bonding orbitals. The valence atomic orbitals in the isolated atoms become
