The Bond Valence Model

(p.36) 3 The Bond Valence Model
The Chemical Bond in Inorganic Chemistry

I. David Brown

Oxford University Press

The bond valence model provides the tools needed for a practical implementation of the flux theory. These include the empirical bonding strengths of atoms, i.e. Lewis acid and base strengths (Section 3.4.3) and the empirical correlation between the bond fluxes (valences) and bond lengths (Section 3.2). Other tools include the distortion theorem (Section 3.4.2), network equations (Section 3.4.4, 3.4.5), valence maps (Section 3.4.6) and bond valence vectors (Section Section 3.4.7).

Keywords:   bond valence, bonding strength, Lewis, bond lengths, distortion, valence maps
