In the unitary model the atomic nucleus plays a decisive role in atomic structure and atomic interactions including chemical bonding. On the assumption that nuclear structure determines and dictates atomic structure and molecular geometry, structures for Carbon, Silicon, Boron and Chlorine atoms are proposed that explain their covalent bonding patterns. Arguments are presented against the current interpretation of ?atomic number?.
