By John G. Verkade

Knowing molecular orbitals (MOs) is a prerequisite to appreciating many actual and chemical houses of topic. This generally revised moment version of A Pictorial method of Molecular Bonding offers the author's leading edge method of MOs, producing them pictorially for a large choice of molecular geometries. a tremendous enhancement to the second one variation is the computer- and Macintosh-compatible Nodegame software program, that's coordinated with the textual content and aids in pictorially educating molecular orbital thought utilizing generator orbitals.

Example text

Calculate the potential energy and the total energy for the Is02s 1 and the Is02pz l states of the hydrogen atom. 5. Verify Equation 2-36. 6. Justify Figure 2-13 from Equations 2-37 to 2-39. In a similar manner justify Figure 2-17b. 7. Show that Equations 2-40, 2-42, and 2-44 are orthogonal for any pair of functions in each. 8. Verify Equation 2-46 by substituting Equation 2-47 and making use of the values ofgk in Figure 2-18. 9. Show from trigonometric considerations that the fk (k = I ~3) for the (Sp2) hybrids stem from the geometric relationship of these orbitals.

2-28) A common convention is to abbreviate the orbital character of such a hybrid as sa pb. Neither convention is to be confused with orbital occupations. In Figure 2-11 are contour plots for fourteen (2st(2px)b carbon hybrids. On the largest 37 Hybrid Orbitals through sop Mixing 1:2 .... :: 2:1 1:10 .... '" ......... 6: 1 3:1 1:1 1:50 0:1 Figure 2-11. Contour plots «h) = constant) of mixtures of (s) and (p) atomic orbitals showing the ratios A 2 : 8 2 . In these plots solid, dotted, and dashed lines denote regions where (h) > 0, (h) = 0, and (h) < 0, respectively.

In this chapter we introduce the generator orbital (GO), which is used here and in subsequent chapters as a device to generate in a pictorial way delocalized and localized molecular orbital (MO) pictures for a variety of molecules. The GO is also employed to generate the normal vibrational modes of these molecules. 1. Molecule Formation and Motions If the centers of atoms A and B in a diatomic molecule are separated by a finite distance R, they experience internuclear repulsion, attraction between the nucleus of one and the electrons of the other, and interelectronic repulsion.
