sp3d and onward

Postby Jasmine 2C » Wed Dec 04, 2019 2:17 am

How would we draw the electron orbitals (with paired and unpaired electrons) for sp3d hybrid orbitals? I don't really know how to explain what I'm asking for so look at image haha how would I draw it for the bottom sp2d hybridization? file:///Users/jasminelouie/Pictures/Photos%20Library.photoslibrary/resources/proxies/derivatives/45/00/4572/xI5n0bM5Rz+xqFd68sWTlg_thumb_4572.jpg

I do not think you have to worry about sp2d orbitals because this is pretty uncommon. For the final, you should just be familiar with sp, sp2, sp3, sp3d, and sp3d2 hybridization.

most of the molecules we have been and will deal with will be sp3d and so on; its unlikely there will ever be a sp2d

You draw d orbitals similar to how you would draw a pi bond i think, however i dont think we will be asked to draw any of them or be asked about d orbitals to begin with, in terms of hybridization
