Determining Hybridization

Postby Kaitlynn Tran 3F » Thu Dec 05, 2019 9:32 pm

Is there a way to tell if a molecule is hybridized just by looking at it?

I believe you can tell by looking at regions of electron density.

If the electrons are localized, then it's how many electron density regions it has. So like CH4, the carbon has 4 electron density regions, so it has sp3.

look at regions of electron density and create orbitals based on that number.

By determining the regions of electron density and then make orbitals with this number in mind.
