91.CHEMICAL BONDING (38)- Covalent Bonding(37) – Molecular Orbital Theory(12) – Heteronuclear Diatomic molecules(1)

With this post we start discussing MOT theory for diatomic heteronuclear molecules – molecules formed by two different atoms. The MO diagrams for heteronuclear atoms are slightly different than the homonuclear ones.This is because in heteronuclear molecules, the contribution from two different atoms is different. It is imperative that for two different atoms to interact,…
