### Hybridization

Does hybridization have a maximum or highest energy level or can it keep going into other orbitals like the f and g ones?

As far as I know, hybridization can go into orbitals like the f and g ones. It's basically how all atoms, especially ones in the later periods, bond. However, the scope of CHEM 14A only covers up to the d orbitals.

I think it can go into higher f and g orbitals, but we are not required to know those.
