Lecture Note

MOLECULAR ORBITAL (M.O.) THEORY
Molecular orbital theory is an approach to bonding in which orbitals encompass the entire molecule, rather than being localized or confined between atoms. Molecular orbitals are region in space where there is high probability of finding electrons in a molecule
Molecular orbitals result from the combination of atomic orbitals. Orbitals are wave functions, they can combine either constructively when in phase with each other, forming a bonding molecular orbital (Figure 1), or destructively when both wavefunctions are out of phase, forming an antibonding molecular orbital (Figure 2).
