Chemical bonding

Chemical Bond-

  1. Generally, Chemical bond is said to be formed when minimum energy lowering of 10 kcal/mol is involved when two atoms come closer from infinity.
  2. Except for inert gases, no other element exists as independent atoms under
    ordinary condition.
  3. Hbond possesses a bond energy in the range of 2-10 kcal/mol hence a H-bond is weaker than a chemical bond.
  4. Kossel-Lewis approach (Octet Rule) and its limitations.
  5. C, N, O, F, s-block metals, noble gases (rare gases or zero-valent gases except Xe) obey octet rule in most cases.
  6. The maximum covalency of second-period elements is “four”.
  7. Types of Chemical Bonds-
  8. Ionic Bond – Criterion- Characteristics- Electrovalency- Lattice Energy- Born Haber Cycle- 
  9. Water has maximum dielectric constant (80), (CH3OH- 35), (Acetone- 21), (C2H5OH-27), (Ether-4.1), (Benzene- 2.3) -H2O > CH3OH > CH3CH2OH > CH3COCH3 > CH3OCH3 > C6H6. Ionic compounds are more soluble in the solvents, having high dielectric constant.
  10. H2SO4 and H2O2 have high dielectric constant but these are not a good solvent due to its oxidizing nature.
  11. Covalent Bond- Bond parameters (bond energy, bond length, bond angle)- Lewis dot structures.
  12. If the electronegativities of two bonded atoms differ, then the bond length is smaller than the sum of their covalent radii. dA – B < rA + rB. See here.
  13. Bond length: C-C 154 pm, C=C 134 pm, C#C 120 pm
  14. Bond dissociation energies- factors affecting- examples
  15. Fajan Rule (Covalent character in ionic compounds) – See here -pseudo-noble gas configuration- charge density or ionic potential or polarising power- polarisability- applications Check

  17. SnO2 is white whereas SnS2 is Yellow.
  18. Diagonal relationship:- Since the value of ionic potential for Be2+ is almost of the same order as that of diagonally situated Al3+. Hence have many similar properties. Similarly, value for Li+ is equal to Mg+2, so have a diagonal relationship.
  19. The high value of ionic potential shows the tendency of forming complex compounds. s-block metals (larger size) doesn’t have the tendency to form complex compounds.
    Exceptions – Li, Be, Mg (small size).
  20. Order of solubility of LiX in water is LiF < LiCl < LiBr < LiI.  In LiI covalent nature is more according to Fajan’s rule but HE > LE, therefore, LiI is more soluble in water.
  21. Order of solubility of MSO4 will be – BeSO4 > MgSO4 > CaSO4 > SrSO4 > BaSO4 (Exception of Fajan’s rule).
  22. Solubility decreases in a period (as ionic nature decreases and covalent nature increases) : NaCl > MgCl2 > AlCl3
  23. For an ionic compound to be soluble in water – Hydration energy > Lattice energy.
  24. Lattice energies calculated for ionic compounds typically fall in the range of 600–4000 kJ/mol (some even higher), covalent bond dissociation energies are typically between 150–400 kJ/mol for single bonds.
  25. H-H bond energy is about 432 kJ/mol and the corresponding bond length is 74 pm (hence covalent radius of a hydrogen atom is 37 pm).

  29. Hybridization-Check  See Here
  30. Valence bond theory- VSEPR theory
  31. Order of strength of Co – axial overlapping – p – p > s – p > s – s (if n is same)
  32. As the value of n increases, bond strength decreases.- 1s – 2p > 2s – 2p > 3s – 3p
  33. Overlapping of s – s, s – pz, pz – pz (axial) atomic orbitals having unpaired electrons of opposite spin leads to formation of Sigma bond.
  34. Delta bond: It is a special type of lateral overlapping in which all four lobes of d-orbital overlap laterally with another similar d-orbital produce delta bond.
  35. The directional property of different hybrid orbitals will be in following order.
    sp < sp2 < sp3 < sp3d < sp3d2 < sp3d3
  36. sp3d involve dz2.
  37. sp3d2 involve dx2–y2 and dz2.
  38. sp3d3 hybridisation involve dxy, dx2-y2 & dz2 orbitals. See here
  39. Comparison between sp. sp2 and sp3 orbitals-
  40. Bond length decreases in the order sp3 – sp3 > sp2 – sp2 > sp – sp

  59. H-bonding- Viscosity & surface tension of the molecules increases.
  60. Ice is lighter than water because in ice, H2O molecules are extending their H-bonds to full length and six water molecules produce a cage-like structure which is porous in nature leading to smaller mass and larger volume, thus lowering the density.
