Difference between Bonding and Anti-bonding Molecular Orbital

Bonding and Anti-bonding Molecular Orbital: The following are the points of difference between Bonding and Anti-bonding Molecular Orbital. Bonding Molecular Orbital (B.M.O) Anti-Bonding Molecular Orbital (A.B.M.O) It is formed by the additive overlap of waves function of atomic orbitals i.e. ΨB2 = (ΨA + ΨB)2 It is formed by the subtractive overlap of wave functions of …
