          History of Chemistry
Greek Philosophers: 5th Century BCE
 (BCE = before the common era - replaces BC)
 The Greek philosophers were the first to
 reflect on the nature of matter.
     They proposed that all matter is made out of
      first 4 elements -- earth, air , water,
      fire. Aristotle added a fifth element, plasma
      (also called ether).
           Greek Philosophers
 Democritushad an alternate view of
 matter. He proposed that matter
 was made up of tiny particles called
     His "theory" was not well accepted at the time.
Alchemy: ~600-1600's CE
     (CE = common era, replaces AD)
     Alchemy developed at about the same time in
      China, India, and Greece. It spread into
      Europe in the 8th century.
Alchemists had two pursuits
  1.   Search for a means to convert “base” metals
       into gold
  2.   Search for the elixir of life
       •   Substance that would lead to immortality
Advances from Alchemy
     Many new substances where identified
       • Plaster of Paris, nitric acid….
     New lab techniques and equipment
     New medicines identified
    Modern Chemistry, ~1600 on
   First chemists/physicists to use scientific method
       Boyle - elements
       Lavoisier – law of conservation of matter
       Proust - law of definite proportions
       Dalton – law of multiple proportions, atomic theory
       Avogadro - hypothesis
       Thomson – charge to mass ratio for an electron
       Millikan – charge on the electron
       Bequerel and the Curies - radioactivity
       Rutherford – nuclear atom
           Modern Chemistry
Robert Boyle: ~1660
 Proposed a substance to be an element
  unless it can be broken down into simpler
     Proposed one of the gas laws – CH 5
               Lavoisier: ~1760

Law of Conservation of Matter
     Matter is neither created nor destroyed in a
      chemical reaction.
             Proust: late 1700s

Law of Definite Composition/Proportions
     A given compound always contains the same
      proportion of elements by mass.
 Experimental      basis for the law of definite
     Proust found all samples of CuCO3 had the
      same relative composition of elements by
       • 5.3 parts Copper
       • 4 parts Oxygen
       • 1 part Carbon
               John Dalton: ~1800

Law of Multiple Proportions
     When two elements form more than one
      compound, the ratios of the masses of the
      second element that combines with one gram
      of the first element can always be reduced to
      small whole numbers.

     Page 70: #27 is an example of experimental
      data consistent with this law
 Daltonalso proposed the first table of
 atomic masses
     Most masses later need revision

 Dalton   is best known for proposing Atomic
           Dalton‟s Atomic Theory
1.       Elements are made up of tiny particles
         called atoms.
     •     Atoms are indivisible and indestructible

2.       Atoms of a given element are identical
          Atoms of different elements differ in some
           fundamental way(s)
           Dalton‟s Atomic Theory
3.       Compounds form when atoms of
         different elements combine with each
          A given compound always has the same
           relative number and types of elements.
           Dalton‟s Atomic Theory
4.       Chemical reactions occur when atoms
         change how they are bound to each
         Individual atoms are not changed, just
             Avogadro: 1811
Avogadro's Hypothesis
     At the same temperature and pressure equal
      volumes of gases contain the same number of

From Dalton to Atomic Structure
 Dalton‟s atomic theory lead to much
  research on the nature of the atom.
 This research showed the atom to made
  up of smaller particles.
                    J.J. Thompson
 Thomson measured the deflection of a
 cathode ray beam in electrical and
 magnetic fields of known strengths.

             Cathode ray tube experiment, pg 46/47
   Thompson found the cathode rays were
    attracted by the positive charge and repelled
    by negative

   These findings clearly indicated that the rays
    consisted of negatively charged particles.
     • Today we know these particles as electrons.
 Thompson  measured the deflection of the
 beam in a magnetic field and determined
 the charge:mass ratio for an electron

  e = - 1.76 x 108 C/g

  e = charge on the electron in coulombs
  M = mass of an electron in grams
 Thomson   also found that the cathode ray
 particles were identical regardless of
     Concluded all elements contain these
      negative particles (electrons)
                 J.J. Thomson
     identified cathode ray beams as a stream of
      negatively charged particles
     calculated the charge to mass ratio for these
      negatively charged particles
     proposed the existence of positively charged
       • To balance the negative charge of the electrons
                Millikan ~1909
           oil drop experiment allowed him
 Millikan‟s
  to determine the charge on an electron
     This charge can be plugged into Thomson‟s
      formula and the mass of the electron
       • Mass electron = 9.11 x 10-31 kg
Becquerel, Marie and Pierre Curie: ~1896
 Henri Becquerel - observed the natural emission
  of energy/rays by uranium.

   Marie and Pierre Curie studied “Becquerel's
       The Curies’ findings suggested that matter was
        composed of smaller particles than atoms.
       The Curies coined the term radioactivity to describe
        the rays emitted.
 Three    types of radioactivity were identified:
     gamma rays - very high energy light
     beta particles - high energy electrons
     alpha particles - He+2 particles
       • 2 protons and 2 neutrons
 Inthe early 1900‟s the accepted model of
  the atom was called the plum pudding
  model of the atom
      Electrons (tiny and negatively charged) were
       pictured to be dispersed in a „cloud‟ of positive
 Rutherford and the Nuclear Atom
 In1911 an experiment conducted in
  Ernest Rutherford‟s lab showed the “plum
  pudding” model to be incorrect.
      Experiment was conducted by Geiger and
       Marsden and the findings interpreted by

             Rutherford‟s Atom
 First   to propose a nuclear atom.
     An atom has a dense positive center
      containing all of positive charge and most of
      the mass of the atom – the nucleus
     Electrons are scattered in the empty space
      around the nucleus
       • Electrons occupy a volume that is huge as
         compared to the size of the nucleus.

Based on ”his” results
       Modern Atomic Structure
 Rutherfordcontinued to study the atom
 and the positive matter of the atom.
     1919, + particle named the proton

 ~1932 James Chadwick proposed the
 existence of a third subatomic particle, the
              Subatomic Particles
Subatomic        Charge   Mass, amu   Location in atom

 Electron          -1       0 amu     Outside of nucleus

Proton (p)         +1      ~1 amu          Nucleus

Neutron (n)        0       ~1 amu          Nucleus
  Mass of Subatomic Particles
 Protons    and neutrons have ~ the same
 mass (in the range of 10 -27 kg).
     Mass of each and of individual atoms is often
      expressed in amu rather than grams
       • Atomic mass unit (amu) – 1/12 the mass of a
         carbon-12 atom
  Mass of Subatomic Particles
 Themass of the electron (10-31 kg) is tiny as
 compared to that of the proton and
 neutron (10-27 kg) .
     Therefore, the electron‟s mass is considered
      to be ~0 amu when calculating the mass of an
           Subatomic Particles and the

          Number of protons defines the element.

         Molecules and Ions (2.6)
 Atoms of different elements combine to
 form compounds
     Atoms in compounds are held together by
      chemical bonds.
       • Bonds involve interactions of the bonding atoms‟
There are two types of bonds:
  1.   Covalent bonds – bonding atoms share
       •   Atoms are always nonmetal atoms
       •   Covalently bonded atoms form molecules
       •   Ways to represent molecules
              Chemical formula; H2O
              Structural formula
                                       O       O
2.   Ionic bonds – attractive force among
     oppositely charged ions
     •   Bond formed between metal cations and
         nonmetal anions
     •   No molecules involved
                Ions - Terms
