The making and breaking of bonds lies at the heart of chemical reactions. The ability of atoms to form bonds with each other allows the formation of molecules. It is exactly this formation and breaking of bonds that chemists are trying to master in the lab, as innovative new ways to control chemical bonds make it possible to make novel compounds that might hold the key for future pharmaceuticals and high-tech materials. Professor David Brown at McMaster University has been developing new models to help teach us the tricks of chemical structure and bonding.

Atoms are complex objects with complex lives. An atom has three parts: protons, neutrons and electrons. For chemists, neutrons are typically the least interesting of these — they are the heavy loners of the chemical world. They add a great deal of mass to the atom, but rarely interact with anything else. The same is not true for the equally-heavy protons and very light, hyperactive electrons. Protons have the same mass as neutrons, but as they are positively charged they will suck up any oppositely charged species, or strongly repel other positively charged ones. For electrons, which move much more rapidly than the protons and neutrons in the atom, the positive lure of the proton can be hard to resist and that is why, most stable atoms or elements, have a perfectly balanced complement of protons and electrons.
When the electrons are trapped by the nucleus, however, they no longer exist as individual electrons. Instead, they merge to form a cloud of negative charge around the nucleus, much as the air forms an atmosphere around the Earth. When atoms start to meet other atoms though, strange things start to happen. Depending on exactly how many protons each atom has and how fond it is of its surrounding negative charge, atoms may start to share their charge and form what are known as chemical bonds. Multiple atoms bonded together by sharing of their negative charge is what leads to the formation of solids and liquids. Understanding how and why some atoms will readily form bonds while others flatly refuse to do so is at the heart of making and designing new compounds and a problem that Professor David Brown, Emeritus Professor at McMaster University, has spent many years thinking deeply about.

One approach to understanding the bonding process is to find ways to calculate the density of the cloud of negative charge, which would essentially provide a map around the atoms or molecules showing where the negative charge is concentrated. However, this relies on a great deal of quantum mechanics and while, particularly in the last ten years, great advances have been made in finding ways to model this density, it is difficult to beat simpler, classical models in terms of computational cost, efficiency and insight.
Modern bond valence theory is a simple and efficient tool that allows for quick and intuitive insights.
What Professor Brown has been developing are models so simple that they can be explored using only pen and paper rather than powerful supercomputers. He calls this ‘modern bond valence theory’, a simple and efficient tool that allows for quick and intuitive insights into the physics of the chemical bond.
Modern bond valence theory
Often, what chemists want to know is the answer to the question ‘will they bond?’ or, if two parts of a molecule won’t stick together, ‘how do I make them bond?’ This means understanding which atoms are likely to want to stick together to make some new friends.

Understanding how and why some atoms will readily form bonds while others flatly refuse to do so is the focus of Professor Brown’s research.
In Professor Brown’s modern bond valence theory, a molecule is just a series of atoms stuck together by a network of bonds. Each atom has a ‘coordination number’, which describes how many bonds the atom forms, and a ‘valence’, which gives the amount of negative charge it uses for bonding. However, having more negative charge does not necessarily mean an atom can form more bonds. The number of bonds is dependent on the atom’s size. The negative charge needs to be loosely enough bound that the atom will not mind sharing it with another atom to form a bond, and the valence of a bond describes how much charge the atom has to give up to form the bond by sharing its negatively charge with another atom.
The amount of valence an atom uses to form a bond depends on the number of bonds the atom forms: the larger the number of bonds, the weaker they are. By dividing the valence of an atom by the number of bonds it forms, it is possible to predict how strong its chemical bonds will be. This is a very important physical property as strong bonds are very difficult to break and influence the final properties of a compound, such as giving rise to higher melting and boiling points. Bond strengths also affect solubility. A compound will be soluble if its constituent atoms have bond strengths that are better matched to the water molecules than they are to each other. This is very important in molecules being considered as drug candidates, as the molecule must be soluble in water to be absorbed into the body.
