68. Covalent Bonding(14)- More concepts in hybridization theory(1).
After studying all types of hybridizations, we now delve deeper into this theory and learn various cardinal concepts related to it in detail. It is
67. Covalent Bonding(13)- sp3d3 , sp3d4 Hybridization.
sp3d3 hybridization The process of mixing one s- orbital, three p- orbitals, and three d-orbitals in an atom to form seven sp3 d3 hybrid orbitals of equivalent energy
66. Covalent Bonding(12)- sp3d2 Hybridization.
sp3d2 hybridization. The process of mixing of one s- orbital ,three p- orbitals and two d-orbital in an atom to form six sp3 d2 hybrid orbitals of equivalent energy is called sp3 d2 hybridization. EXAMPLE – SULPHUR HEXACHLORIDE (SF6) In the last post we studied the hybridization in SF4 molecule. The central sulphur atom was sp3d hybridized. It had a lone pair of electrons. […]
65. Covalent Bonding(11)- sp3d Hybridization.
In the last few posts, we studied about the most common types of hybridization namely -sp3, sp2, and sp hybridization. These are exhibited predominantly by
63. Covalent Bonding(9)- sp2 Hybridization.
sp2 hybridization. The process of mixing one s- orbital with two p- orbitals in an atom to form three sp2 hybrid orbitals of equivalent energy is called sp2 hybridization.
56. Covalent Bonding(2)- VBT (2)
The Valence bond theory (VBT) is one of the theories which explains the formation of the covalent bond. It is based on the assumption that
55. Covalent Bonding(1)- VBT (1)
Bonding in molecules forms the basis of elucidating their structure, which in turn dictates the properties of substances. In this post, we shall learn about
