dz orbital

Postby josephyim1L » Wed Oct 17, 2018 9:38 pm

In class today, Lavelle mentioned that the cone around the dz orbital is a nodal plane as well as an area of reactivity, can someone explain this in more detail?

I think he meant that the area within the cone up to the boundary of the cone is an area of reactivity, but the cone itself is a nodal plane.

The cone itself is a nodal plane because the probability of locating an electron in that plane is zero.
