Sunday May 1st 2022 | In this lecture we discuss some of the exercises of the Take Home Exercises II that will be handed out today. In particular, we discuss the molecular orbital diagram of allene, and how it relates to it’s structure. Next week will discuss the hypervalent compound PF6, where we will show by using the reduction formula how we could obtain the irreducible representations and the resulting MO diagram without using d-orbitals. The answers for all the exercises can be found int he course materials associated with this lesson.
