# Ch. 13 - Molecular Structure Ch. 6 Molecular Structure I. Lewis Diagrams (p. 170 175) I II III A. Octet Rule

Remember Most atoms form bonds in order to have 8 valence electrons. A. Octet Rule F F Hydrogen 2 valence e F B F Groups F

S F 1,2,3 get 2,4,6 valence e H N O O H Expanded octet more than 8 F Very Fe (e.g.unstable!!

valence S, P, F Xe) Exceptions: - - Radicals odd # of valence e- -

B. Drawing Lewis Diagrams Find total # of valence e-. Arrange atoms - singular atom is usually in the middle. Form bonds between atoms (2 e-).

Distribute remaining e- to give each atom an octet (recall exceptions). If there arent enough e- to go around, form double or triple bonds. B. Drawing Lewis Diagrams CF4

charge. Place brackets around the ion and label the charge. C. Polyatomic Ions ClO41 Cl 7e- = 7e4 O 6e- = 24e31e+ 1e32e- 8e24e O O Cl O O C. Polyatomic Ions NH4+ 1 N 5e- = 5e4 H 1e- = 4e9e- 1e8e- 8e0e
