The Electron-Pair Repulsion Model for Molecular Geometry
Gillespie, R. J.
J Chem Educ, 47, 1, 18-23, 70 Jan
Describes how the electron-pair repulsion model qualitatively explains the size and shape of molecular orbitals. Briefly discusses trigonal bipyramidal molecules, three-center bonds, and transition elements. Describes cluster compounds and finishes with a discussion of the exceptions to the model and effects of ligand-ligand repulsions. (RR)
