The correct bond order in the following species is
A
O2+ < O2$$-$$ < O22+
B
O2$$-$$ < O2+ < O22+
C
O22+ < O2+ < O2$$-$$
D
O22+ < O2$$-$$ < O2+

Explanation

$$\,$$ Bond order $$ = {1 \over 2}$$ [Nb $$-$$ Na]

Nb = No of electrons in bonding molecular orbital

Na $$=$$ No of electrons in anti bonding molecular orbital

In O atom 8 electrons present, so in O2, 8 $$ \times $$ 2 = 16 electrons present.

Then in $$O_2^ + $$ no of electrons = 15

in $$O_2^ - $$ no of electrons = 17

in $$O_2^{2 + }$$ no of electrons = 14

$$\therefore\,\,\,\,$$ Molecular orbital configuration of O2 (16 electrons) is

$${\sigma _{1{s^2}}}\,\,\sigma _{1{s^2}}^ * \,$$ $${\sigma _{2{s^2}}}\,\,\sigma _{2{s^2}}^ * \,$$ $${\sigma _{2p_z^2}}\,\,{\pi _{2p_x^2}} = {\pi _{2p_y^2}}\,\,\pi _{2p_x^1}^ * \,\, = \pi _{2p_y^1}^ * $$

$$\therefore\,\,\,\,$$Na = 6

Nb = 10

$$\therefore\,\,\,\,$$ BO = $${1 \over 2}\left[ {10 - 6} \right] = 2$$

Molecular orbital configuration of O$$_2^ + $$ (15 electrons) is

$${\sigma _{1{s^2}}}\,\sigma _{1{s^2}}^ * \,{\sigma _{2{s^2}}}\,\sigma _{2{s^2}}^ * \,{\sigma _{2p_z^2}}\,{\pi _{2p_x^2}}\, = \,{\pi _{2p_y^2}}\,\pi _{2p_x^1}^ * \, = \,\pi _{2p_y^o}^ * $$

$$\therefore\,\,\,\,$$ Nb = 10

Na = 5

$$\therefore\,\,\,\,$$ BO = $${1 \over 2}\left[ {10 - 5} \right]$$ = 2.5

Molecular orbital configuration of $$O_2^ - $$ (17 electrons) is

$${\sigma _{1{s^2}}}\,\sigma _{1{s^2}}^ * \,{\sigma _{2{s^2}}}\,\sigma _{2{s^2}}^ * \,{\sigma _{2p_z^2}}\,{\pi _{2p_x^2}}\, = \,{\pi _{2p_y^2}}\,\pi _{2p_x^2}^ * \, = \,\pi _{2p_y^1}^ * $$

$$\therefore\,\,\,\,$$ Nb = 10

Na = 7

$$\therefore\,\,\,\,$$ BO = $${1 \over 2}\left[ {10 - 7} \right]$$ = 1.5

Molecular orbital configuration of O $$_2^{2 + }$$ (14 electrons) is

$${\sigma _{1{s^2}}}\,\sigma _{1{s^2}}^ * \,{\sigma _{2{s^2}}}\,\sigma _{2{s^2}}^ * \,{\sigma _{2p_z^2}}\,{\pi _{2p_x^2}}\, = \,{\pi _{2p_y^2}}\,\pi _{2p_x^0}^ * \, = \,\pi _{2p_y^0}^ * $$

$$\therefore\,\,\,\,$$ Nb = 10

Na = 4

$$\therefore\,\,\,\,$$ BO = $${1 \over 2}$$ [ 10 $$-$$ 4] = 3

$$O_2^-$$ $$O_2$$ $$O_2^+$$ $$O_2^{2+}$$
