Delocalized Hybridization

Postby Kyla Grunden 1L » Tue Nov 26, 2019 12:49 pm

Will we be asked to find the hybridization of structures with delocalized electron pairs? For example, what would be the hybridization of the nitrogen in amide?

I believe they could still ask you that question because technically a double bond (or any other resonance/delocalized electron pair) is considered 1 region of electronegativity.

Even with delocalized electron pairs, there is still a bond that exists there so hybridization will still occur. For this reason, these electrons must still be included in hybridization of orbitals.
