Describe how the bonding and atomic arrangement in diamond differs from that in other allotropes of carbon such as graphite, graphene, and fullerenes (Buckyballs).

13.The silicate anion (SiO44-) “orthosilicate” is the basic building block of all silicate materials. Draw the Lewis Dot Structure for the (SiO44-) ion. Based on your Lewis dot structure, what is the predicted geometry for the (SiO44-) ion? What kind of bonds occur between Si and O in the (SiO44-) ion?
