Molecules and Models: The molecular structures of main group element compounds

Arne Haaland


The book opens with three chapters describing the properties of atoms. The first chapter deals with the application of quantum mechanics to hydrogen and other one-electron atoms; the second with the use of the atomic orbital model to describe He and other two-electron atoms; the third gives an overview of the electron configurations, ground state energies, ionization energies, electronegativity coefficients, and atomic sizes of poly-electron atoms. The following six chapters deal with the properties of diatomic molecules, in particular their bond distances, dissociation energies, electric dipo ... More

Keywords: bonding models, main group elements, atoms, hydrogen, one-electron atoms, two-electron atoms, poly-electron atoms
