Exam 1 Study Guide  Constitutional isomers: same molecular formula, different spatially  Bonding groups: tetra, tri, di, mono  Ionic bonds: complete separation of charge  Covalent bonds: equal sharing of electrons  Formal charges on atoms: o Oxygen: likes 2 bonds o N: likes 3 bonds o H: likes 1 bond o C: likes 4 bonds o Halogens: like one bond  Hybridized orbitals: “mathematically averaged, all shook up”  Intermolecular forces: o Dispersion  Weakest o Dipole-dipole  Medium  HCl o Hydrogen bonding:  Strong/ very strong  HF, HO, H2O, HN  Electrophile: e- poor  Nucleophile: e- rich  Line bond structures o General rules  All heteroatoms must be shown  Halogens, O, P, S, N  H’s are not shown  All C-C bonds are zig zag  Double bond has priority  Rules/formulas o Alkanes  CnH2n+2 o Alkenes  CnH2n o Alkynes  CnH2n-2 o Rings+DoubleBonds  Unsaturation number  (#C+1) – ½ Hs – ½ halogens + ½ N o Formal Charge: valence e-s - # unbonded e-s - # bonded pairs of e-s  Halogens o Cl- chloro o Br- bromo o I- iodo  Resonance structures o “equivalent structures”  Arrow pushing  Bronsted-Lowry Acid o Proton donor o Base: proton acceptor  Buffering system o Requires weak acid and its conjugate base  Acid o E- pair acceptor (electrophile) o E- pair donor (nucleophile)  Pka = -logKa o -1  -10: medium strong  very strong acids o -1-->2-3: moderate acids o _>3: weak acids  Atoms in same row in periodic table, electronegativity is the dominant/determining effect  Same column in periodic table affects stability of anion  Cyclopropane: severe ring strain, high energy, less stable  Cyclobutane: less angle strain than ^ but more torsional strain because of 4 sets of eclipsing hydrogens vs 3 sets for ^  Cyclopentane: much less torsional strain, but does have some
