How do you find molecular orbitals?


  • Find the valence electron configuration of each atom in the molecule.
  • Decide if the molecule is homonuclear of heteronuclear.
  • Fill molecular orbitals using energy and bonding properties of the overlapping atomic orbitals.
  • Use the diagram to predict properties of the molecule.

What is the molecular orbital diagram for no?

Nitric oxide is a heteronuclear molecule that exhibits mixing. The construction of its MO diagram is the same as for the homonuclear molecules. It has a bond order of 2.5 and is a paramagnetic molecule. The energy differences of the 2s orbitals are different enough that each produces its own non-bonding σ orbitals.

What is the bond order of o2+?

There are 10 electrons in BMO and 5 electrons in ABMO . So the bond order of O2+ is 2.5.

What is the bond order of CO?

The bond order of CO is 3. Bond order is the number of chemical bonds between a pair of atoms. For example, in diatomic nitrogen N≡N the bond order is 3, in acetylene H−C≡C−H the bond order between the two carbon atoms is also 3, and the C−H bond order is 1.
