Molecular Orbital theory

Postby Brian_Mena_1J » Fri Oct 28, 2016 4:17 pm

Is molecular orbital theory to prove whether bonds between atoms can exist?

I think that the M.O. theory is used to determine the structure of a molecule, especially if it has delocalized electrons (as in, the electrons are not tied to any pair of atoms, like in benzene).

I think I remember Dr. Lavelle saying the molecular orbital theory also helps determine the energy differences within a molecule, but I'm not entirely sure.

So, MO theory allows us to find the bonding order and the magnetic properties but why does knowing those things help us i.e. what are they for?

Are we supposed to know MO theory and how to use it for the midterm?

The midterm covers only up to the end of hybridization, so there is no MO Theory.
