Lewis Dot of the Nitrite Ion



70 More Lewis Dot Structures

The nitrite ion cannot be satisfactorily represented by just one Lewis Dots structure.

 All the bonds are the same length and must be thought of as a hybrid of multiple resonance structures.

When constructed the NO bond has a bond order of 1.5. It is stronger than a single bond but weaker than a double.
