Lewis Acid and Base Theory

In the early 1900s, Gilbert N. Lewis, one of the well-known American chemists, introduced the concept of Lewis acids and bases. Today, his theory has led us to a better understanding of what acids and bases are and has been able to get explanations for many chemical reactions, which remained unclear.

Sigma and pi bonds

Different orbitals make different types of overlap in different situations. And based on a type of overlap, we classify them as a sigma or pi bond.

Hybridization is the mixing of atomic orbitals to form new hybrid orbitals, which are suitable for chemical bonding. The total number of atomic orbitals before mixing always equals the number of newly formed hybrid orbitals. In methane, four atomic orbitals (one 2s and three 2p) mix to form four sp3 hybrid orbitals—we will explain this in detail later on.

Organic Chemistry

Chemistry is the subject of different elements of the Mendeleev’s periodic table, reactions and mechanisms, physical and chemical properties and finally the application of these elements. There are 118 elements reported in nature and only one element, which is carbon [Atomic no 6, symbol C] is founder of organic chemistry discipline.

Chemistry Formulas

A compound comprises two or more than elements, and the chemistry formula reveals the number of atoms present in each component. The chemical formula contains symbols of the element’s atoms in the compound. It also reflects the number of atoms present in each element.
