Step 1 of 3

CEM 141 Lecture 26: Carbon and Graphite Dr. Jian Hu 2 November 2016 Bonding in Diamond  Electron configuration is [He] 2s 2p 2  Carbon uses hybrid orbitals for bonding in diamond  # of atomic orbitals in = # of hybrid orbitals out  1 s orbital + 3 p orbitals create 4 sp orbitals (sp hybridization)   Each electron will occupy one of the sp orbitals  sp naturally form a tetrahedral structure 3  When two carbon atoms (with sp ) combine, they form a sigma molecular orbital  When the hybrid orbitals combine, there is a large gap between the bonding and antibonding molecular orbitals  The sp hybridized atomic orbitals give rise to strong directed bonds (sigma bon
