2 A. Atomic Orbitals The s- and p -orbitals are the most important in organic compounds. Orbital pictures are actually electron probability clouds. x y z x y z x y z x y z sp X Y Z s - o r b i t a l s: spherical, electrons held close to nucleus, one sign - o r b i t a l s: two lobes with opposite signs, electrons further from nucleus Remember, the sign of the orbital does not indicate charge.
