hybridization number

Postby Giovanni Anguiano-Gutierrez 3L » Sun Nov 24, 2019 9:19 pm

When trying to find the hybridization number for some bonds, do the lone pairs on the central atom count when trying to figure out the number, or only the molecules around the central count?

Remember that each lone pair is considered as a separate area of electron density and that multiple bonds between the same two atoms is considered as one area of electron density.

yes, you must consider lone pairs

Yes, lone pairs do count. Hybridization takes into account all areas of electron density.

Yes, you do count it because it is an area of electron density.
