Molecular Orbitals (M.O.) Theory :

(I) There is Linear combination of Atomic Orbitals (LCAO) to form molecular orbitals (M.O.)

(II) The number of molecular orbitals produced is equal to the number of atomic orbitals that are combined.

(III) Two types of molecular orbitals are formed.

(a) Bonding molecular orbitals at a lower energy than the combining atomic orbitals which favour bond formation.

(b) Anti - bonding molecular orbitals at a higher energy than the combining atomic orbitals which opposes the bond formation.

Following molecular orbitals are formed when atomic orbitals overlap.

Electrons are filled in the increasing order of energy of the molecular orbitals which is in order of Aufbau rule

(a) When total electrons in the molecule or ions are more than 14(simple order of energy level of M. O.).

(b) When total number of electrons in the molecule are ions are  ≤ 14 (modified order of energy level of M.O.).

(I) The electrons are filled in molecular orbitals in the same way as in atomic orbitals, that is, as per the Hund's Rule, Pauli exclusion principle and Aufbau rule.

(II) Number of covalent bonds between two atoms is called Bond order and is given by Bond order (B.O.) = Doc: Molecular Orbital Theory Class 11 Notes | EduRev

Where, NB = number of electrons in bonding molecular orbital and NA = number of electrons in anti bonding molecular orbitals.

(III) For a stable molecule/ion, NB > NA

(IV) A given molecule or ion is paramagnetic if it has unpaired electrons in the molecular orbital. Otherwise it is diamagnetic

(V) Greater the bond order, shorter the bond length and greater the bond energy. Thus for O2, O2  , O2,O22-

Fajan's Rule :

This rule is used to decide relative ionic & covalent character in a molecule. A molecule is predominantly covalent if

(I) Smaller the size of cation.

(II) larger the size of anion.

(III) greater the charge on cation and anion.

(IV) ion does not have inert gas configuration but it possesses pseudo inert gas configuration (18 electrons in the ultimate shell).

(I) Doc: Molecular Orbital Theory Class 11 Notes | EduRev

(II) Doc: Molecular Orbital Theory Class 11 Notes | EduRev

(III) Doc: Molecular Orbital Theory Class 11 Notes | EduRev

(IV) CuCl and NaCl

[Cu ] = [Ar]3d10 ; [Ne ] = [Ne]

Cations with 18-electron shells (pseudo inert gas configuration) has grater polarising power than 8-electron shell (inert gas configuration) ion with the same charge and size. Thus, CuCl is more covalent than NaCl.


Hydrogen Bonding :

(I) The concept of H-bonding was introduced by Latimer and Rodebush.

(II) H-bonding is said to be formed when slightly acidic hydrogen attached to a strongly electronegative atom such as F, O and N is held with weak electrostatic forces by the non- bonded pair of electron of another atom. That is , it is a dipole-dipole interaction.

(III) Of all the electronegative donor atoms, only F, O. and N enter into stable H-bond formation.

(IV) The weak electrostatic interaction leading to the H-bond formation is shown by dashed(.....) lines.

(V) Greater the electronegativity difference, stronger is the H-bond. For example,

Intramolecular H-bonding ;

This type of H-bonding occurs when polar H and electronegative atom are present in the same molecule.

(a) o-hydroxy benzaldehyde

(b) o-nitrophenol

Intermolecular H-bonding

This type of H-bonding takes place between hydrogen and electronegative element (like F,O,N) present between molecules of the same substance (H2O and H2O) or different substances (H2O and NH3).
