1 Lecture 18 Orbitals Consistent with Molecular Shapes: Hybridization 9.3 Hybridization in Molecules with Multiple Bonds 9.4 Lecture 18, Knowledge and Skills • Form hybrid orbitals: sp, sp 2 , and sp 3 • Form ± bonds with hybrid orbitals and unhybridized orbitals • Form ² bonds with unhybridized p orbitals Generation of Atomic Hybrid Orbitals (Valence Bond Theory) Like the formation of molecular orbitals from atomic orbitals of different atoms, it is also possible to generate new atomic orbitals by the combination of orbitals of the same atom . The resulting orbitals are called hybrid orbitals . The total number of orbitals is not changed in the hybridization process. For example, one s orbital and one p orbital can be hybridized to form two sp orbitals. In this case, 1/2 of each orbital is used for each sp hybrid orbital. Or, in the formation of three sp 2 orbitals, one s orbital and two p orbitals are hybridized. In this case, 1/3 of the s orbital and 2/3 of the p orbitals are mixed into each hybrid.
