Band Theory

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Hi everyone, I am trying to construct qualitative band diagrams and I think I have confused myself. I am not sure on how to figure out what the electron configurations are of the orbitals when k=0. I get that at k=π/2 it is the opposite state but I can't seem to figure out how to get the initial state. The problem I am working on is an infinite Florine chain at the moment.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I know it has 4 bands due to it's four orbitals but I can't figure out why at k=0 the 2pz orbital is antibonding. Thanks for the help.

    Thanks for the post! Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?
