hybridizing d orbitals

Postby Katie Bart 1I » Thu Nov 21, 2019 10:47 am

When d orbitals hybridize, what new orbital(s) do they form?

They form the dsp^3 and the d^2sp^3

You can also write it like sp^3d or 2sp^3d

are we going to have to know the d hybridizations or are we only supposed to know the p hybridizations?

Since Dr. Lavelle mentioned it in class, I think we should be familiar with the d-orbital hybridizations as well.

How do we know when something has a 2 in front of it? IE 2dsp^2

An easy way to consider it is just another electron density region. For four, it's sp3. If there's one more, it moves on to the d orbitals.
