84. Covalent Bonding(30) – MOT(5).
In this post, we shall begin by constructing MO diagrams for various molecules. We begin with the simplest of all homonuclear diatomic molecules – The
76. Covalent Bonding(22) – Drago Rule (1).
This post is all about asking the right questions to arrive at the desired answer. We will study certain observations that do not follow the
75.Covalent Bonding(21)- Hybridization in solid-state.
How do compounds exist in solid-state? Compounds exist as ions in the solid-state. Consider the following example – PCl5 molecule – This molecule has trigonal
74.Covalent Bonding(20)- Bent’s rule(3).
Example 3 – PCl3F2 molecule . This molecule has TBP geometry, with two F atoms and three Cl atoms as substituents. According to Bent’s rule,
64. Covalent Bonding(10)- sp Hybridization.
sp hybridization. The process of mixing one s- orbital with one p- orbital in an atom to form two sp hybrid orbitals of equivalent energy is called sp hybridization. EXAMPLE
62.CHEMICAL BONDING (9)- Covalent Bonding(8)- sp3 Hybridization.
sp3 hybridization The process of mixing of one s- orbital with three p- orbitals in an atom to form four sp3 hybrid orbitals of equivalent energy is
58. Covalent Bonding(4)- VESPR model(2).
In the VSEPR model, the valence shell is considered a sphere. The electron pairs are considered to be on this spherical surface, as far away
57. Covalent Bonding(3)- VESPR model(1).
In the last two posts, we discussed the valence bond theory (VBT) at length. The VBT theory is not foolproof and we shall discuss its
