NO +2 Orbital

Postby Salma Sudarmadji 2I » Thu Nov 17, 2016 7:08 pm

If I were to do a MO diagram for NO +2, would I take away 1 e- from O and 1 e- from N or would I take away 2 e- from just O?

I would make the molecular orbital for NO first, then just take away two from the orbitals.

That is, make this first (NO):

And then just take away two electrons (one from π*2px, then one from π2py).
