difference between Valence bond theory and molecular orbital theory?
Posted 1 September 2009 - 06:49 AM
Tutorials on valence bond theory state that the orbitals of the individual atoms overlap when a bond forms. Doesn't that also form a molecular orbital?
if so what is molecular orbital theory?

because of that, MO theory can predict several things that VB theory can't, such as magnetism, precise bond order and aromaticity
consider text in my posts which is in Purple as being sarcastic.
