CHEM 112 (Wk 1) LEED’s (Drawing LEDD’s) LEDD’s: Lewis Electron Dot Diagram Main concepts of drawing LEDD’s Make correct layout of molecule Complete all three criteria • e- count (Find total number of valence electrons) • Valence (Find total number of bonds based on # of unpaired electrons around central atom) • Octet (8)/Duet (2); (Add electrons to the elements that satisfy the octet rule; group 4A- 7A (Some may exceed the octet rule; orange handout #10). Hydrogen satisfies the duet rule (Can only form one bond) Count number of e- sets around central atom • Electron sets can be a lone pair, double bond, single bond, or triple bond. For exam
