Either use values that are provided or use electronega0vity as a guide. Be sure to follow the right- hand rule when drawing the orbitals in the Cartesian coordinate system. x z y Deriving Molecular Orbital Diagrams of Heteronuclear Diatomics; OF- 2py 2px 2pz energy - 15.9 eV 2s 2px x 2py 2pz - 18.7 eV - 32.4 eV z y 2s O Atomic Orbitals - 46.4 eV F Atomic Orbitals Deriving Molecular Orbital Diagrams of Heteronuclear Diatomics; OF- Example: OF- Step 2: Determine which orbitals on oxygen can interact with which orbitals on ﬂuorine. For orbitals to interact with each other, they must meet the following condiHons: 1)  Symmetry CondiHons They must have the same symmetry about the internuclear axis ↳  typically chosen as the z- axis. z px pz 2)  Energy CondiHons The diﬀerence in their energies must be less than 13 eV. - Symmetry Considera0ons for OF 2py 2px 2pz energy - 15.9 eV 2s - 32.4 eV Symmetry- Allowed InteracHons: O(2s)±F(2s) O(2px)±F(2px) O(2s)±F(2pz) 2px 2py - 18.7 eV O(2py)±F(2py) O(2pz) ±F(2pz) O(2pz)±F(2s) 2s O Atomic Orbitals 2pz - 46.4 eV F Atomic Orbitals - Energy Considera0ons for OF Which of the symmetry- allowed orbital combina0ons are also energy- allowed?
