CHEMICAL BONDINGTYPES OF BONDINGThe different types of chemical bonding are determinedby how the valence electrons are shared among thebonded atoms.Filled electron shell coreValence Electron CloudIn IONIC BONDING the valence electrons are completely transferred from one atom to the other atom.Ionic bonds occur between metals and nonmetalswhen there is a large difference in electronegativity.Ionic BondingIn COVALENT BONDING the valence electrons areshared as pairs between the bonded atoms.Pure covalent bonding only occurs when two nonmetalatoms of the same kind bind to each other. When twodifferent nonmetal atoms are bonded or a nonmetal anda metal are bonded, then the bond is a mixture of covalent and ionic bonding called polar covalent bonding.Covalent BondingIn POLAR BONDING the electrons are shared butNOT equally. Many compounds have the characteristics of BOTH ionic and covalent bonding. Electronegativity differences determine the balance of character.Polar BondingIn METALLIC BONDING the valence electrons areshared among all of the atoms of the substance.Metallic bonding occurs when metals bond to eitherthemselves or mixed with other metals in alloys.Using the periodic table of electronegativities fromthe last page, write down examples of atom pairswhich you would expect to form covalent bonds,polar covalent bonds and ionic bonds.Metallic Bonding4

CHEMICAL BONDINGPOLAR BONDSIonic and covalent bonds are two ideal types.Many bonds share characteristics of both ionic andcovalent bonding. They are called polar covalentbonds and they tend to occur between atoms of moderately different electronegativities.In polar covalent bonds the electrons belong predominantly to one type of atom while they are still partiallyshared by the other type, as illustrated in the followingpictures of the valence electron densities.Separated AtomsValence electron(s)Filled electron shell coreIonic BondPolar Covalent BondCovalent BondUsing the chart of electronegativities, arrangethe following compounds in an order from mostionic to most covalent:Al2O3 , CaCl2 , NaF , O2 , NaCl,In the picture above, the separated atoms look alike.If, in fact, they are the same kind of atom, which ofthe three bonds shown is possible?Why only that one?What other type of bonding is possible betweenidentical atoms?6

CHEMICAL BONDINGMETALLIC BONDING‘ELECTRON SEA’ MODEL FOR METALSMetals are formed from elements on the left hand sideof the periodic table. Having generally low electronegativity they tend to lose their valence electrons easily.When we have a macroscopic collection of the sameor similar type of metallic atoms, the valence electronsare detached from the atoms but not held by any ofthe other atoms. In other words, these valence electrons are free from any particular atom and are onlyheld collectively by the entire assemblage of atoms.In a metal the ion cores are held more or less at fixedplaces in an ordered, or crystal, lattice. The valenceelectrons are free to move about under applied stimulation, such as electric fields or heat. e-e- e-e- e- e- e- e- e-1Picture 1 presents a regular arrangement of the ion coresfor a metal with a single valence electron per atom as wellas a snapshot of the location of the freely moving valenceelectrons.2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2Picture 2 shows a collection of ion cores for a metalwith two valence electrons. Draw in the valenceelectrons. (Little circles are good enough.)HINT: Metals are neutral in charge.What is the origin of electrical and thermalconductivity in sodium metal?Why do metals exhibit a wide range of melting points and hardness?7

CHEMICAL BONDINGINTERMOLECULAR FORCESIn addition to covalent, polar, ionic and metallic bonding there are intermolecular forces which contributeto the stability of things. These include dipole-dipoleforces, hydrogen bonding and London dispersionforces.DIPOLE-DIPOLE FORCESMany molecules are electric dipoles, that is, they havenet positive charge on one part of the molecule andnet negative charge on another part. Since oppositecharges attract and like charges repel, these moleculeswill tend to orient themselves so that there is the mostattraction and the least repulsion.Why is dipole-dipole interaction more important inliquids than in solids?Why is it more important in liquids than in gases?Can homonuclear diatomic molecules such as H2, O2and N2 have dipole-dipole forces?DIPOLE-DIPOLE INTERACTIONHYDROGEN BONDINGA particularly strong and important variety of dipoledipole interaction is called hydrogen bonding. Ahydrogen atom on one molecule is attracted to a highlyelectronegative atom in another molecule. Hydrogenbonding is strong both because of the high polarityinvolved and because the small size of the hydrogenatom permits a close approach between it and theelectronegative atomHYDROGENOXYGENHydrogen bonding is particularly noted between water molecules, but from the description given aboveyou should be able to deduce other substances inwhich hydrogen bonding occurs.HYDROGEN BONDINGLONDON DISPERSION FORCESEven nonpolar molecules have a random fluctuationof charge making the molecule temporarily polar. Thisthen induces an opposite fluctuation in a neighboringmolecules so that the two molecules have oppositecharges on their near sides and attract each other.inducedctm effequantuorF-FF-Fquantum effectinduced8WATERMOLECULE

CHEMICAL BONDINGIONS: COUNTING ELECTRONS AND PROTONSNEUTRAL ATOMSNeutral atoms have the same number of electrons asprotons. In the picture below, the nuclear charge isrepresented by the gray circle marked 3 , for the 3protons in the nucleus of lithium. Electrons are markedas horizontal dashes, one for each electron.POSITIVE IONSPositive ions have more protons than electrons.Since the number of protons an atom has is fixed inordinary chemical reactions, positive ions are producedby removing electrons from the atoms.Li Li3 3 In the pictures below draw in the number of electronsneeded to make the ion named in the box.In the pictures below, draw in the number of electrons required to make the atom neutral and write theelement symbol in the box to the left of the atom.Na 11 Mg2 12 8 9 NEGATIVE IONSNegative ions have more electrons than protons.Since the number of protons is unchanged from the neutralatom, negative ions are formed by the addition of electrons.In the pictures below draw in the number of electronsneeded to make the ion named in the box.11 O2-8 F-9 17 9
