Hybridization

Postby vpena_1I » Sat Dec 07, 2019 2:04 pm

I'm not really sure if I'm wording this right, but the hybridization of 2 bounded atoms can be, for example, σ(C2sp2, C2sp2).

How would this look between a lone pair of electrons and an atom?
How would this type of question be asked?

I've seen the questions worded as "Identify the composition of each bond and the hybridization of each lone pair" for questions that use that notation. I'm not sure if this is the situation you are talking about, but for example the hybridization of lone pairs of oxygen can look like O(sp2) or O(sp3). That was an example from a review session.
