Chemistry 222-500 Spring 2007 Hybrid Orbitals and Multiple Bonds 1. Consider the acetonitrile molecule: a. Predict the bond angles around each carbon atom. Approximately 109.5 o around the left C, and 180 o on the right C b. Give the hybridization at each of the carbon atoms. From left to right, they are sp 3 and sp c. Determine the total number of σ and π bonds in the molecule. Five σ bonds and two π bonds 2. Consider this structure of glycine, the simplest amino acid. Note: lone pair electrons are NOT shown in this structure. a. What are the approximate bond angles about each of the two carbon atoms, and what are their hybridizations? Approximately 109.5 o and sp 3 around the left C, and 120 o and sp 2 on the right C b. What are the hybridizations of the two oxygen atoms and the nitrogen atom, and what are the approximate bond angles at the nitrogen? The O with the double
