Pictorial Molecular Orbital Theory
A molecular orbital diagram , or MO diagram , is a qualitative descriptive tool explaining chemical bonding in molecules in terms of molecular orbital theory in general and the linear combination of atomic orbitals LCAO method in particular.
This tool is very well suited for simple diatomic molecules such as dihydrogen , dioxygen , and carbon monoxide but becomes more complex when discussing even comparatively simple polyatomic molecules, such as methane. MO diagrams can explain why some molecules exist and others do not. They can also predict bond strength, as well as the electronic transitions that can take place. Qualitative MO theory was introduced in by Robert S. Mulliken   and Friedrich Hund. Molecular orbital diagrams are diagrams of molecular orbital MO energy levels , shown as short horizontal lines in the center, flanked by constituent atomic orbital AO energy levels for comparison, with the energy levels increasing from the bottom to the top.
Lines, often dashed diagonal lines, connect MO levels with their constituent AO levels. Degenerate energy levels are commonly shown side by side. Appropriate AO and MO levels are filled with electrons by the Pauli Exclusion Principle, symbolized by small vertical arrows whose directions indicate the electron spins. The AO or MO shapes themselves are often not shown on these diagrams. For a diatomic molecule , an MO diagram effectively shows the energetics of the bond between the two atoms, whose AO unbonded energies are shown on the sides.
For simple polyatomic molecules with a "central atom" such as methane CH 4 or carbon dioxide CO 2 , a MO diagram may show one of the identical bonds to the central atom. For other polyatomic molecules, an MO diagram may show one or more bonds of interest in the molecules, leaving others out for simplicity.
Often even for simple molecules, AO and MO levels of inner orbitals and their electrons may be omitted from a diagram for simplicity. In MO theory molecular orbitals form by the overlap of atomic orbitals. The atomic orbital energy correlates with electronegativity as more electronegative atoms hold their electrons more tightly, lowering their energies. Sharing of molecular orbitals between atoms is more important when the atomic orbitals have comparable energy; when the energies differ greatly the orbitals tend to be localized on one atom and the mode of bonding becomes ionic.
A second condition for overlapping atomic orbitals is that they have the same symmetry. Two atomic orbitals can overlap in two ways depending on their phase relationship or relative signs for real orbitals. The phase or sign of an orbital is a direct consequence of the wave-like properties of electrons. In graphical representations of orbitals, orbital sign is depicted either by a plus or minus sign which has no relationship to electric charge or by shading one lobe.
The sign of the phase itself does not have physical meaning except when mixing orbitals to form molecular orbitals. Two same-sign orbitals have a constructive overlap forming a molecular orbital with the bulk of the electron density located between the two nuclei. This MO is called the bonding orbital and its energy is lower than that of the original atomic orbitals.
Symmetry labels are further defined by whether the orbital maintains its original character after an inversion about its center; if it does, it is defined gerade , g. If the orbital does not maintain its original character, it is ungerade , u. Atomic orbitals can also interact with each other out-of-phase which leads to destructive cancellation and no electron density between the two nuclei at the so-called nodal plane depicted as a perpendicular dashed line.
In this anti-bonding MO with energy much higher than the original AO's, any electrons present are located in lobes pointing away from the central internuclear axis. The next step in constructing an MO diagram is filling the newly formed molecular orbitals with electrons.
Three general rules apply:. The electrons in the bonding MO's are called bonding electrons and any electrons in the antibonding orbital would be called antibonding electrons. The reduction in energy of these electrons is the driving force for chemical bond formation.
Whenever mixing for an atomic orbital is not possible for reasons of symmetry or energy, a non-bonding MO is created, which is often quite similar to and has energy level equal or close to its constituent AO, thus not contributing to bonding energetics.
Alternatively it can be written as a molecular term symbol e. Sometimes, the letter n is used to designate a non-bonding orbital. The relative order in MO energies and occupancy corresponds with electronic transitions found in photoelectron spectroscopy PES.
In this way it is possible to experimentally verify MO theory. In general, sharp PES transitions indicate nonbonding electrons and broad bands are indicative of bonding and antibonding delocalized electrons. Bands can resolve into fine structure with spacings corresponding to vibrational modes of the molecular cation see Franck—Condon principle.
MO diagrams with energy values can be obtained mathematically using the Hartree—Fock method. The starting point for any MO diagram is a predefined molecular geometry for the molecule in question. An exact relationship between geometry and orbital energies is given in Walsh diagrams. The phenomenon of s-p mixing occurs when molecular orbitals of the same symmetry formed from the combination of 2s and 2p atomic orbitals are close enough in energy to further interact, which can lead to a change in the expected order of orbital energies.
Generally, in order to predict their relative energies, it is sufficient to consider only one atomic orbital from each atom to form a pair of molecular orbitals, as the contributions from the others are negligible.
A diatomic molecular orbital diagram is used to understand the bonding of a diatomic molecule. MO diagrams can be used to deduce magnetic properties of a molecule and how they change with ionization. They also give insight to the bond order of the molecule, how many bonds are shared between the two atoms. Quantum Mechanics is able to describe the energies exactly for single electron systems but can be approximated precisely for multiple electron systems using the Born-Oppenheimer Approximation , such that the nuclei are assumed stationary.
Diatomic molecules consist of a bond between only two atoms. They can be broken into two categories: homonuclear and heteronuclear. A homonuclear diatomic molecule is one composed of two atoms of the same element. A heteronuclear diatomic molecule is composed of two atoms of two different elements. The smallest molecule, hydrogen gas exists as dihydrogen H-H with a single covalent bond between two hydrogen atoms. As each hydrogen atom has a single 1s atomic orbital for its electron , the bond forms by overlap of these two atomic orbitals.
In the figure the two atomic orbitals are depicted on the left and on the right. The vertical axis always represents the orbital energies. Each atomic orbital is singly occupied with an up or down arrow representing an electron.
The photoelectron spectrum of dihydrogen shows a single set of multiplets between 16 and 18 eV electron volts. The dihydrogen MO diagram helps explain how a bond breaks. When applying energy to dihydrogen, a molecular electronic transition takes place when one electron in the bonding MO is promoted to the antibonding MO.
The result is that there is no longer a net gain in energy. From the diagram you can deduce the bond order , how many bonds are formed between the two atoms. For this molecule it is equal to one.
Bond order can also give insight to how close or stretched a bond has become if a molecule is ionized. Dihelium He-He is a hypothetical molecule and MO theory helps to explain why dihelium does not exist in nature. The MO diagram for dihelium looks very similar to that of dihydrogen, but each helium has two electrons in its 1s atomic orbital rather than one for hydrogen, so there are now four electrons to place in the newly formed molecular orbitals. Another molecule that is precluded based on this principle is diberyllium.
Beryllium has an electron configuration 1s 2 2s 2 , so there are again two electrons in the valence level. However, the 2s can mix with the 2p orbitals in diberyllium, whereas there are no p orbitals in the valence level of hydrogen or helium. Hence the diberyllium molecule exists and has been observed in the gas phase. The 1s MOs are completely filled and do not participate in bonding.
Dilithium is a gas-phase molecule with a much lower bond strength than dihydrogen because the 2s electrons are further removed from the nucleus.
The three dumbbell -shaped p-orbitals have equal energy and are oriented mutually perpendicularly or orthogonally. The other two p-orbitals, p y and p x , can overlap side-on. The resulting bonding orbital has its electron density in the shape of two lobes above and below the plane of the molecule. The orbital is not symmetric around the molecular axis and is therefore a pi orbital. The antibonding pi orbital also asymmetrical has four lobes pointing away from the nuclei. Both p y and p x orbitals form a pair of pi orbitals equal in energy degenerate and can have higher or lower energies than that of the sigma orbital.
Because the electrons have equal energy they are degenerate diboron is a diradical and since the spins are parallel the molecule is paramagnetic.
In certain diborynes the boron atoms are excited and the bond order is 3. The molecule can be described as having two pi bonds but without a sigma bond.
With nitrogen, we see the two molecular orbitals mixing and the energy repulsion. This is the reasoning for the rearrangement from a more familiar diagram. The bond order of diatomic nitrogen is three, and it is a diamagnetic molecule.
The MO diagram correlates with the experimental photoelectron spectrum for nitrogen. Oxygen has a similar setup to H 2 , but now we consider 2s and 2p orbitals. Another property we can observe by examining molecular orbital diagrams is the magnetic property of diamagnetic or paramagnetic. If all the electrons are paired, there is a slight repulsion and it is classified as diamagnetic. If unpaired electrons are present, it is attracted to a magnetic field, and therefore paramagnetic. Oxygen is an example of a paramagnetic diatomic.
Also notice the bond order of diatomic oxygen is two. This is attributed to interaction between the 2s MO and the 2p z MO. As in diboron, these two unpaired electrons have the same spin in the ground state, which is a paramagnetic diradical triplet oxygen. The first excited state has both HOMO electrons paired in one orbital with opposite spins, and is known as singlet oxygen. In dineon Ne 2 as with dihelium the number of bonding electrons equals the number of antibonding electrons and this molecule does not exist.
Dimolybdenum Mo 2 is notable for having a sextuple bond. Ditungsten W 2 has a similar structure. Table 1 gives an overview of MO energies for first row diatomic molecules calculated by the Hartree-Fock-Roothaan method , together with atomic orbital energies.

Mullikan, incorporates the wave like characteristics of electrons in describing bonding behavior. In Molecular Orbital Theory, the bonding between atoms is described as a combination of their atomic orbitals. While the Valence Bond Theory and Lewis Structures sufficiently explain simple models, the Molecular Orbital Theory provides answers to more complex questions. In the Molecular Orbital Theory, the electrons are delocalized.
Graph Theory can also be applied directly to quantum chemistry; a good illustration of this is the graph theoretical derivation of the Pairing. Theorem, derived.
Вдоволь посмеявшись, он исчез бы насовсем, превратившись в легенду Фонда электронных границ. Сьюзан стукнула кулаком по столу: - Нам необходимо это кольцо. Ведь на нем - единственный экземпляр ключа! - Теперь она понимала, что нет никакой Северной Дакоты, как нет и копии ключа. Даже если АНБ расскажет о ТРАНСТЕКСТЕ, Танкадо им уже ничем не поможет. Стратмор молчал. Положение оказалось куда серьезнее, чем предполагала Сьюзан. Самое шокирующее обстоятельство заключалось в том, что Танкадо дал ситуации зайти слишком .
Обычно я напиваюсь только к четырем! - Он опять засмеялся. - Как быстрее добраться до аэропорта. - У входа возьмешь такси. Беккер вытащил из кармана купюру в тысячу песет и сунул панку в руку. - Премного благодарен, приятель! - крикнул тот ему вслед. - Увидишь Меган, передавай от меня привет! - Но Беккер уже исчез. Двуцветный вздохнул и поплелся к танцующим.
Она вглядывалась в глаза Танкадо - и видела в них раскаяние. Он не хотел, чтобы это зашло так далеко, - говорила она. - Он хотел нас спасти. Но снова и снова он протягивал руку, так, чтобы люди обратили внимание на кольцо. Он хотел объяснить им, но не. И все тянул и тянул к ним свои пальцы. В Севилье Беккер лихорадочно обдумывал происходящее.
Шифры, - задумчиво сказал Беккер - Откуда ты знаешь, с чего начинать. То есть… как ты их вскрываешь. Сьюзан улыбнулась: - Уж ты-то мог бы это понять.
