Hybridization beyond d orb

Postby Michaela Capps 1l » Wed Nov 15, 2017 12:57 pm

We have mostly just looked at the hybridizations of elements with a maximum of d orbitals, but what would the hybridization for an atom with say an f orbital look like?

The f orbitals are extremely complex, with some shapes looking like a double sided pacifier.
