Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The bond order of F22+ and whether it is paramagnetic or diamagnetic should be determined on the basis of molecular orbital theory.

Concept introduction:

According to Molecular orbital (MO) theory,

  • The atomic orbitals of the atoms constituted in a molecule are combined to produce new orbitals are called Molecular Orbitals.
  • Like atomic orbitals, a molecular orbital can accommodate maximum two electrons and the two electrons must have opposite spins (Pauli Exclusion Principle).
  • Relative energy levels of molecules are according to the energy levels of atomic orbitals.
  • Order arrangement of electrons in the molecular orbitals is shown below.

    14 and below 14 electrons configuration:

    σ1s<σ*1s<σ2s<σ*2s<π2pyπ2pz<σ2px*2pyπ*2pz*2px

14 above electrons configuration:

σ1s<σ*1s<σ2s<σ*2s<σ2px<π2pyπ2pz*2pyπ*2pz*2px

  • Bond order=12×[numberofelectronsinbondingmolecularorbitlas numberofelectronsinantibondingmolecularorbitlas]

  • Paramagnetic species have one or more unpaired electrons in their molecular orbitals.
  • Diamagnetic species have no unpaired electrons in the molecular orbitals. 

To determine: whether the F22+ is paramagnetic or diamagnetic
