The molecular oxygen or dioxygen (O 2 ) molecule has 6 molecular orbitals (MO) in its triplet state, of which the two π 2p ∗ MO contain each one electron. Thus, O 2 has two unpaired electrons (indicated by a dot ); that is, O 2 is an uncharged diradical molecule: O–O. An electron that is donated by another molecule is incorporated in one of the two π 2p… CONTINUE READING
