What is Bonding and Anti-Bonding Molecular Orbitals?

Bonding and Anti-Bonding Molecular Orbitals: Molecular orbitals are the linear combination of atomic orbitals with a maximum overlap which produces as many molecular orbitals as the number of combining atomic orbitals. Thus, when two atomic orbitals overlap each other, two molecular orbitals are formed i.e. Bonding molecular orbital and anti-bonding molecular orbital. Let us consider the …
