Unformatted text preview: e unhybridized p orbitals overlap at the same time, resulting in π electrons that are delocalized over the entire surface of the molecule. This is represented as: or CHAP. 14 586 54. COVALENT BONDING: ORBITALS - EVEN-NUMBER PROBLEMS Benzoic acid (C7 H6 O2) has 7(4) + 6(1) + 2(6) = 46 valence electrons. The Lewis structure for benzoic acid is: O C H O C H H C C C The circle in the ring indicates the delocalized π bonding in the benzene ring. The two benzene resonance Lewis structures have three alternating double bonds in the ring (see Figure 14.48). C H C H H The six carbons in the ring and the carbon bonded to the ring are all sp2 hybridized. The five C−H sigma bonds are formed from overlap of the sp2 hybridized carbon atoms with hydrogen 1s atomic orbitals. The seven C−C σ bonds are formed from head to head overlap of sp2 hybrid orbitals from each carbon. The C−O single bond is formed from overlap of an sp2 hybrid orbital on carbon with an sp3 hybrid orbital from oxygen. The C−O σ bond in the double bond is formed from overlap of carbon sp2 hybrid orbital with an oxygen sp2 orbital. The π bond in the C−O double bond is formed from overlap of parallel p unhybridized atomic orbitals from C and O. The delocalized π bonding system in the ring is formed from overlap of all six unhybridized p atomic orbitals from the six carbon atoms. See Figure 14.50 for delocalized π bonding system in the benzene ring.
