Orgo Ch.3: Bonding
Terms in this set (13)
Carbon is different from many other elements in that
its is tetravalent, it can form bonds to 4 other atoms
The principal quantum number (n) indicates what property of an electron?
-organizational level: shell
-possible values: 1 to infinity (realistically 1-7)
The azimuthal quantum number (l) indicates what property of an electron?
-organizational level: sub shell
-possible values: 1 to (n-1)
The magnetic quantum number (ml) indicates what property of an electron?
-organizational level: orbital
-possible values: -l to +l
The spin quantum number (ms) indicates what property of an electron?
-possible values: -1/2 to +1/2
When forming molecular orbitals, if the signs of the wave functions are the same:
a lower energy (more stable) bonding orbital is formed
When forming molecular orbitals, if the signs of the wave functions are the different:
a higher energy (less stable) bonding orbital is formed
when a molecular orbital is formed by head-to-head or tail-to-tail overlap, the resulting bond is called
a sigma bond
When two p orbitals line up in parallel (side-by-side), their electron clouds overlap, and;
a bonding molecular orbital called a pi bind is formed
One pi bond on top of a sigma bonds is called a:
a sigma bond and two pi bonds is called a:
while double bonds are stronger than single bonds overall:
individual pi bonds are weaker than sigma bonds
-requires alternating single & multiple bonds because this patterns aligns a number of unhybridized p-orbitals down the backbone of the molecule so that pi electrons can delocalize
