Throughout the history of the human race, people have struggled to make sense of the world around them. Through the branch of science we call chemistry we have gained an understanding of the matter which makes up our world and of the interactions between particles on which it depends. The ancient Greek philosophers had their own ideas of the nature of matter, proposing atoms as the smallest indivisible particles. However, although these ideas seems to fit with modern models of matter, so many other Ancient Greek ideas were wrong that chemistry cannot truly be said to have started there. Alchemy was a mixture of scientific investigation and mystical quest, with strands of philosophy from Greece, China, Egypt and Arabia mixed in. The main aims of alchemy that emerged with time were the quest for the elixir of life (the drinking of which would endue the alchemist with immortality), and the search for the philosopher’s stone, which would turn base metals into gold. Improbable as these ideas might seem today, the alchemists continued their quests for around 2000 years and achieved some remarkable successes, even if the elixir of life and the philosopher’s stone never appeared. Towards the end of the eighteenth century, pioneering work by Antoine and Marie Lavoisier and by John Dalton on the chemistry of air and the atomic nature of matter paved the way for modern chemistry. During the nineteenth century chemists worked steadily towards an understanding of the relationships between the different chemical elements and the way they react together. A great body of work was built up from careful observation and experimentation until the relationship which we now represent as the periodic table emerged. This brought order to the chemical world, and from then on chemists have never looked back. Modern society looks to chemists to produce, amongst many things, healing drugs, pesticides and fertilisers to ensure better crops and chemicals for the many synthetic materials produced in the twenty-first century. It also looks for an academic understanding of how matter works and how the environment might be protected from the source of pollutants. Fortunately, chemistry holds many of the answers (iii)Following the progressing trend in chemistry, it enters into other branches of chemistry and answers for all those miracles that are found in all living organisms. The present book is written after following the revised syllabus, keeping in view with the expectations of National Council of Educational Research & Training (NCERT). The questions that are given in each and every chapter can be taken only as model questions. A lot of self evaluation questions, like, choose the best answer, fill up the blanks and very short answer type questions are given in all chapters. While preparing for the examination, students should not restrict themselves, only to the questions/problems given in the self evaluation. They must be prepared to answer the questions and problems from the entire text. Learning objectives may create an awareness to understand each and every chapter. Sufficient reference books are suggested so as to enable the students to acquire more informations about the concepts of chemistry. Dr. V.

Chemical bond Existence of a strong force of binding between two or many atoms is referred to as a Chemical Bond and it results in the formation of a stable compound with properties of its own. The bonding is permanent until it is acted upon by external factors like chemicals, temperature, energy etc. It is known that, a molecule is made up of two or many atoms having its own characteristic properties which depend on the types of bonding present. 1 Classification of molecules Molecules having two identical atoms like H , O , Cl , N etc. are 2 2 2 2 called as homonuclear diatomic molecules. Molecules containing two different atoms like CO, HCl, NO, HBr etc., are called as heteronuclear diatomic molecules. Molecules containing identical but many atoms bonded together such as P, S etc., are called as homonuclear 4 8 polyatomics. In most of the molecules, more than two atoms of different kinds are bonded such as in molecules like NH , CH COOH, SO , HCHO 3 3 2 and they are called as heteronuclear polyatomics. Chemical bonds are basically classified into three types consisting of (i) ionic or electrovalent bond (ii) covalent bond and (iii) coordinate- covalent bond. Mostly, valence electrons in the outer energy level of an atom take part in the chemical bonding. In 1916, W.Kossel and G.N.Lewis, separately developed theories of chemical bonding inorder to understand why atoms combined to form molecules. According to the electronic theory of valence, a chemical bond is said to be formed when atoms interact by losing, gaining or sharing of valence electrons and in doing so, a stable noble gas electronic configuration is achieved by the atoms. Except Helium, each noble gas has a stable valence shell of eight electrons. The tendency for atoms to have eight electrons in their outershell by interacting with other atoms through electron sharing or electron-transfer is known as the octet rule of chemical bonding. 10.1.1 Kossel-Lewis approach to Chemical Bonding W.Kossel laid down the following postulates to the understanding of ionic bonding: In the periodic table, the highly electronegative halogens and the • highly electropositive alkali metals are separated by the noble gases. Therefore one or small number of electrons are easily gained and transferred to attain the stable noble gas configuration. The formation of a negative ion from a halogen atom and a positive • ion from an alkali metal atom is associated with the gain and loss of an electron by the respective atoms. 2 The negative and positive ions so formed attains stable noble gas • electronic configurations. The noble gases (with the exception of helium which has two electrons in the outermost shell) have filled outer shell electronic configuration of eight electrons (octet of 2 6 electrons) with a general representation ns np . The negative and positive ions are bonded and stabilised by force of • electrostatic attraction. Kossel's postulates provide the basis for the modern concepts on electron transfer between atoms which results in ionic or electrovalent bonding. For example, formation of NaCl molecule from sodium and chlorine atoms can be considered to take place according to Kossel's theory by an electron transfer as: lossofe + ──→ ─ ─ (i) Na Na + e 1 Ne 3s Ne where Ne = electronic configuration of Neon 2 6 = 2s 2p gain ofe - ─ ─→ ─ ─ (ii) Cl + e Cl 2 5 Ne3s 3p Ar Ar = electronic configuration of Argon + - + - electrostatic (iii) Na+Cl NaCl(or)Na Cl ───→ ─ ─ attraction NaCl is an electrovalent or ionic compound made up of sodium ions and chloride ions. The bonding in NaCl is termed as electrovalent or ionic bonding. Sodium atom loses an electron to attain Neon configuration and also attains a positive charge. Chlorine atom receives the electron to attain the Argon configuration and also becomes a negatively charged ion. The + - coulombic or electrostatic attraction between Na and Cl ions result in NaCl formation. Similarly formation of MgO may be shown to occur by the transfer of two electrons as: 3 - loss ofe 2+ ──→ ─ ─ (i) Mg Mg + 2e 2 Ne3s Ne - gain ofe 2- ───→ ─ ─ (ii) O + 2e O 2 4 2 6 He2s 2p He2s 2p (or) Ne 2+ 2- 2+ 2- electrostatic (iii) Mg +O─ ──→ ─ ─ MgO(or)Mg O attraction The bonding in MgO is also electrovalent or ionic and the electrostatic 2+ 2- forces of attraction binds Mg ions with O ions. Thus, "the binding forces existing as a result of electrostatic attraction between the positive and negative ions", is termed as electrovalent or ionic bond. The electrovalency is considered as equal to the number of charges on an ion. Thus magnesium has positive electrovalency of two while chlorine has negative electrovalency of one. The valence electron transfer theory could not explain the bonding in molecules like H , O , Cl etc., and in other organic molecules that have 2 2 2 ions. G.N.Lewis, proposed the octet rule to explain the valence electron sharing between atoms that resulted in a bonding type with the atoms attaining noble gas electronic configuration. The statement is : "a bond is formed between two atoms by mutual sharing of pairs of electrons to attain a stable outer-octet of electrons for each atom involved in bonding". This type of valence electron sharing between atoms is termed as covalent bonding. Generally homonuclear diatomics possess covalent bonds. It is assumed that the atom consists of a `Kernel' which is made up of a nucleus plus the inner shell electrons. The Kernel is enveloped by the outer shells that could accommodate a maximum of eight electrons. The eight outershell electrons are termed as octet of electrons and represents a stable electronic configuration. Atoms achieve the stable outer octet when they are involved in chemical bonding. In case of molecules like F , Cl , H etc., the bond is formed by the 2 2 2 sharing of a pair of electrons between the atoms. For example, consider the formation of a fluorine molecule (F). The atom has electronic 2 2 2 5 configuration. He2s 3s 3p which is having one electron less than the electronic configuration of Neon. In the fluorine molecule, each atom 4 contributes one electron to the shared pair of the bond of the F molecule. 2 In this process, both the fluorine atoms attain the outershell octet of a noble gas (Argon) (Fig. 10.1(a)). Dots ( ) represent electrons. Such structures are • called as Lewis dot structures. Lewis dot structures can be written for combining of like or different atoms following the conditions mentioned below : Each bond is the result of sharing of an electron pair between the • atoms comprising the bond. Each combining atom contributes one electron to the shared pair. • The combining atoms attain the outer filled shells of the noble gas • configuration. If the two atoms share a pair of electrons, a single bond is said to be formed and if two pairs of electrons are shared a double bond is said to be formed etc. All the bonds formed from sharing of electrons are called as covalent bonds. x • (or) F-F 8e 8e Fig. 10.1(a) F molecule 2 In carbon dioxide (CO ) two double bonds are seen at the centre carbon 2 atom which is linked to each oxygen atom by a double bond. The carbon and the two oxygen atoms attain the Neon electronic configuration. Fig. 10.1 (b) CO molecule 2 5 When the two combining atoms share three electron pairs as in N 2 molecule, a triple bond is said to be formed. Each of the Nitrogen atom shares 3 pairs of electrons to attain neon gas electronic configuration. Fig. 10.1 (c) N molecule 2 10.2 Types of Bond There are more than one type of chemical bonding possible between atoms which makes the molecules to show different characteristic properties. The different types of chemical bonding that are considered to exist in molecules are (i) ionic or electrovalent bond which is formed as a result of complete electron transfer from one atom to the other that constitutes the bond; (ii) covalent bond which is formed as a result of mutual electron pair sharing with an electron being contributed by each atom of the bond and (iii) coordinate - covalent bond which is formed as a result of electron pair sharing with the pair of electrons being donated by only one atom of the bond. The formation and properties of these types of bonds are discussed in detail in the following sections. 10.3 Ionic (or) Electrovalent bond The electrostatic attraction force existing between the cation and the anion produced by the electron transfer from one atom to the other is known as the ionic (or) electrovalent bond. The compounds containing such a bond are referred to as ionic (or) electrovalent compounds. Ionic bond is non directional and extends in all directions. Therefore, in solid state single ionic molecules do not exist as such. Only a network of cations and anions which are tightly held together by electro-static forces exist in the ionic solids. To form a stable ionic compound there must be a net lowering of energy. That is, energy is released as a result of electovalent bond formation between positive and negative ions. 6 When the electronegativity difference between the interacting atoms are greatly different they will form an ionic bond. In fact, a difference of 2 or more is necessary for the formation of an ionic bond. Na has electronegativity 0.9 while Cl has 3.0, thus Na and Cl atoms when brought together will form an ionic bond. For example, NaCl is formed by the electron ionisation of sodium atom + to Na ion due to its low ionisation potential value and chlorine atom to chloride ion by capturing the odd electron due to high electron affinity. Thus, NaCl (ionic compound) is formed. In NaCl, both the atoms possess unit charges. ionisation + - ──→ ─ ─ i) Na(g) Na + e (g) 2 6 1 2 6 2s2p3s 2s sp sodium cation affinity - - ─ ─→ ─ ─ ii) Cl(g) + e Cl 2 5 2 6 3s3p 3s , 3p chloride anion + - electrostatic iii) Na + Cl ───→ ─ ─ NaCl attraction Sodium Chloride ionic/crystalline ion ion compound is formed Fig. 10.2 Electron transfer between Na and Cl atoms during ionic bond formation in NaCl In CaO, which is an ionic compound, the formation of the ionic bond involves two electron transfers from Ca to O atoms. Thus, doubly charged positive and negative ions are formed. ionisation 2+ - ──→ ─ ─ Ca Ca +2e (Calcium Cation) 6 2 3p 4s electron - 2 (Oxide anion) + O 2e─ ─→ ─ ─ O 2 4 2 6 aaffinity 2s 2p 2s 2p 7 electrostatic 2+ 2- Ca + O───→ ─ ─ CaO attraction ionic compound Ionic bond may be also formed between a doubly charged positive ion with single negatively charged ion and vice versa. The molecule as a whole remains electrically neutral. For example in MgF , Mg has two positive 2 2+ charges and each fluorine atom has a single negative charge. Hence, Mg - binds with two fluoride (F ) ions to form MgF which is electrically neutral. 2 2+ - Mg Mg + 2e → 2 6 2 2 6 (2s 2p 3s (2s 2p ) - 2e + 2F 2F → 2 5 2 6 (2s 2p) (2s 2p ) 2+ - i.e:- Mg + 2F MgF → 2 Magnesium - fluoride (an ionic compound). Similarly in Aluminium bromide (AlBr ), Aluminium ion has three 3 positive charges and therefore it bonds with three Bromide ions to form AlBr which is a neutral ionic molecule. 3 3+ - Al Al + 3e → 6 2 1 2 6 2p 3s 3p (2s , 2p ) - - 3 Br + 3e 3 Br → 2 5 2 6 (4s 4p) (4s 4p ) 3+ - Al + 3Br AlBr (ionic bond) → 3 10.3.1 Lattice energy and Born - Haber's cycle Ionic compounds in the crystalline state exist as three dimensionally ordered arrangement of cations and anions which are held together by columbic interaction energies. The three dimensional network of points that represents the basic repetitive arrangement of atoms in a crystal is known as lattice or a space lattice. Thus a qualitative measure of the stability of an ionic compound is provided by its enthalpy of lattice formation. Lattice enthalpy of an ionic solid is defined as the energy required to completely separate one mole of a solid ionic compound into gaseous constituent ions. That is, the enthalpy change of dissociation of MX ionic 8
