Hey guys
I know everyone is busy with their studies,but please if u have time please clear my doubt.I was going through qu.657 from manan(1000q),its a basic chemistry we learned in our college days.
Can anyone summarize sp2 hybridization,or is their any site i can brush up with.
Thanks:)
Good luck for exams

hi

since u asked for the summary of sp2 hybridization, here it is for all the three... and also website where all three are explained.... hope it clears your doubts..


sp3 hybridization

sp3occurs when a C has 4 attached groups
sp3 has 25% s and 75% p character
the 4 sp3 hybrids point towards the corners of a tetrahedron at 109.5o to each other
each sp3hybrid is involved in a s bond sp2 hybridization

sp2 occurs when a C has 3 attached groups
sp2 has 33% s and 67% p character
the 3 sp2 hybrids point towards the corners of a triangle at 120o to each other
each sp2 hybrid is involved in a s bond
the remaining p orbital forms the p bond
view a double bond as a s + p bond sp hybridization

sp occurs when a C has 2 attached groups
sp has 50% s and 50% p character
the 2 sp hybrids point in opposite directions at 180o to each other
each sp hybrid is involved in a s bond
the remaining p orbitals forms the 2p bonds
view a triple bond as a s + 2p bonds http://chemistry.boisestate.edu/rbanks/inorganic/bonding%20and%20hybridization/bonding_hybridization.htm (http://chemistry.boisestate.edu/rbanks/inorganic/bonding%20and%20hybridization/bonding_hybridization.htm)

this one has audio-visual flash player:
