Abstract:

Secondary chemical bonds and their influence on the physical and chemical properties of metalorganic compounds are discussed. The phenomena of generalizing valence electrons of primary bonds accompanying the origin of multicenter molecular orbits with secondary bond development have been observed in large classes of compounds. The theory postulates that as strong chemical bonds are formed due to direct reaction of valence electrons of adjoining atoms, secondary less durable bonds develop due to the monovalent electrons created by energy changes in the molecule. IR spectroscopy was used to study Li-organic compounds. Experimental proof of generality in the nature of secondary chemical bonds promoting metalorganic bonds of Li, Be, B and Al is the existence of mixed complexes between such compounds R-Li.BeR2.
