Demystifying Introductory Chemistry. Part 2: Bonding and Molecular Geometry Without Orbitals--the Electron Domain Model.
Gillespie, Ronald J.; And Others
Journal of Chemical Education, v73 n7 p622-27 Jul 1996
Presents an alternative approach to bonding and geometry--the electron domain model--which avoids some of the problems with the conventional approach. Discusses difficulties with the orbital model at the introductory level, electron spin and the Pauli exclusion principle, electron pair domains, nonequivalent domains, multiple bonds, and origins and justification of the electron domain model. Contains 14 references. (JRH)
