Atomic structure
Protons, neutrons and electrons are called subatomic particles

The number of protons and electrons in an atom are exactly equal

Atoms have no overall charge /// Atoms are electrically neutral
The identity of an element depends on the atomic number of the element
The properties of an element depend on the atomic number of the element
Mass number = number of protons + number of neutrons

Isotopes are different atoms of an element which have the same number of protons
but different number of neutrons
The isotopes of an element have
different masses and physical properties different mass number
same chemical properties same atomic number
chemists use a relative scale to compare the masses of atoms
Relative isotopic mass ≈ mass number of the isotope
The relative atomic mass of an element is the weighted average mass of all the
naturally occurring isotopes of that element on the 12C = 12.00 scale

Transition elements (metals)

Periodic table
1. In periodic table, all the elements are arranged with increasing atomic number
2. Across a period in the periodic table, the elements change from metals through
metalloids to non-metals
3. Same number of outermost shell electrons = similar chemical properties
There is usually a gradual change in the properties of elements as we move down

Chemical bonds
- When non-metals combine to form a covalent compound, their atoms combine
to form molecules. Force: covalent bond
- When a metal and a non-metal combine to form an ionic compound,
Force: ionic bond
- Most elements except noble gases react to form compounds because
their atoms are relatively unstable
- Noble gases are unreactive because they have either a completely-filled
outermost shell or eight electrons in their outermost shells
- Atoms can obtain the stable electronic arrangements of atoms of noble gases by
gaining or losing electrons
- A simple ion forms when an atom either loses or gains one or more electrons
- Atoms of metals tends to lose one or more electrons to form positive ions
- Atoms of non-metals tends to gain one or more electrons to form negative ions
- Ionic bond is the electrostatic attractive force between oppositely charged ions

- Atoms of non-metal elements can join together to form groups called molecules

- A covalent bond is the strong electrostatic forces of attraction between the

shared electrons and the two positively charged nuclei of the bonded atoms

 Hydrogen forms diatomic molecules. H2

 Since atoms of noble gases are stable, they do not form bonds and thus,
noble gases are made of monatomic molecules

- N can combine with F in more than one way,

way So we have to indicate the number
of F atoms in the formula.

- If a metal can form more than one kinds of ions,
ions the charge on the ion should be
- A dative covalent bond (or coordinate bond)) is a bond formed between two
atoms where both electrons of the shared pair are contributed by the same atom
- The electrons lost are free to move throughout the structure and are shared by
all atoms in the structure
- These free electrons are described as a ‘sea’ of electrons
- Metallic bond = attraction between +ve ions and delocalized electrons
- Relative molecular mass = formula mass = sum of relative atomic mass
tructure, bonding and properties
- The structure of a substance is the way in which its particles are arranged
- The properties of a substance depend on its structure, which in turn depends on
its bonding

The chemical formula of a substance made up of molecules is also called its

molecular formula.
The molecular formula of a substance gives the actual number of atoms of each
element in each molecule of the substance.
All ionic compounds are solids High

Water: soluble Non-aqueous
aqueous solvents: insoluble
Conduct electricity when molten or in aqueous solution
Hardness strong ionic bonds between oppositely charged ions
Melt/Boil pt strong attractive forces between the ions
Solubility Many ionic compounds are soluble in polar solvent (e.g.water) but
insoluble in non-aqueous / non-polar solvents
[E]Conductivity molten state or aqueous solution
polar molecules(極性分子

the hydrogen atoms.

δ = ∆ = delta
aqueous solvents (e.g.CCl4) usually contain non-polar molecules.
polar molecules attract ions less strongly than polar molecules. Thus,
polar molecules are not strong enough to remove ions from the giant ionic
Therefore sodium chloride is insoluble in non-aqueous
non solvents.

A solute dissolves in a non-aqueous
aqueous solvent to give a non-aqueous
aqueous solution
In solid state, the ions in the compound are held together by strong ionic bonds and
they are not free to move
The ions become mobile in molten state or aqueous solution

Ionic compounds are decomposed by electricity during conduction.

i.e. ionic compounds undergo electrolysis. They are called electrolytes(電解質
Giant Covalent Structure[diamond,

metal that conducts electricity and is used to make many
kinds of electrodes

most non-metals and covalent compounds have simple molecular structures except
diamond, graphite and quartz.

- The atoms within a molecule are strongly bonded together (by covalent bonds -).
- Each molecule is attracted to neighbouring molecules by
weak intermolecular forces only (----).
The structure of iodine (I – I)
Weak van der Waals’ forces hold the molecules together

The structure of dry ice O=C=O

Dry ice consists of separate carbon dioxide (CO2) molecules
Weak intermolecular forces (called van der Waals’ forces) always exist between
Weak van der Waals’ forces hold the molecules together

Properties of simple molecular substances

Simple molecular solids are soft
Solid substances with simple molecular structures are usually soft
because the attractive forces between the molecules are weak
Have low melting points and boiling points
The attractive forces between the molecules are weak, so little
energy is needed to separate the molecules
Melting/boiling of a simple molecular structure involves the
M.P and B.P separation of molecules from one another but not the breaking of
molecules into atoms
Therefore substances with simple molecular structures have low
melting and boiling points
CO2 sublimes(昇華) at –78oC
Water : insoluble Non-aqueous solvents: soluble
usually slightly soluble or insoluble in water
The weak attractive forces between iodine and water molecules are
not strong enough to overcome the strong attractive forces between
the water molecules
Non-conductors of electricity, whether as solids, liquids or in aqueous solution
they do not contain mobile electrons or ions
Electrical conductivity Does pure water conduct electricity?
No. Pure water contains neutral molecules
The iodine molecules
cannot mix with the
polar water molecules

Attractive forces
between non
molecules are similar.

The stream of water is

not deflected to
either electrodes

Like dissolves like

Intermolecular forces = van der waals’ forces

In general, the larger the molecular size, the greater will be the van der Waals’ forces
between molecules
Molecular size : F2 < Cl2 < Br2 < I2 (down group 7)
Strength of van der Waals’ forces : F2 < Cl2 < Br2 < I2
Melting point : F2(g) < Cl2(g) < Br2(l) < I2(s)
Simple molecular substances may be gases, liquids or solids

giant metallic structure

Density high densities due to the close packing of their atoms
M.P Strong attractive force - high melting points
Electrical and heat good conductors of electricity
conductivity the movement of mobile electrons
Metals are good conductors of heat due to the
movement of mobile electrons in metals
展性 and
Malleability(展性 The ability to be deformed under compression
ductility(延性 can be flattened to give a thin sheet by hammering
The ability to be deformed under tension
can be pulled into a long wire
Atoms in metals are packed in layers.
As a metal is struck by a hammer, the atom layers slide
through the ‘sea’ of electrons to new positions.
The metal does not break because the atoms are still
bound together by the ‘sea’ of electrons.
The free electrons can move into new positions to
maintain the structure

Some substances with simple molecular structures are soluble in water and
conduct electricity in aqueous solutions because
they react with water to give mobile ions.
