sp Hybridization

  • This type involves mixing of one ‘s’ orbital and one ‘p’ orbital of equal energy to give a new hybrid orbital known as an sp hybridized orbital.
  • The mixture of s and p orbital and the formed sp orbital is maintained at 1800.
  • Example of sp-hybridized is: BeCl2

sp2 Hybridization

  • This kind involves mixing of one ‘s’ orbital and two ‘p’ orbital’s of equal energy to give a new hybrid orbital known as sp2.
  • A mixture of s and p orbital formed in trigonal symmetry and is maintained at 1200.
  • Example of sp2 hybridized is: Ethylene (C2H4)

sp3 Hybridization

  • This type involves mixing of one ‘s’ orbital and three ‘p’ orbital’s of equal energy to give a new hybrid orbital known as sp3.
  • A mixture of s and p orbitals formed is in tetrahedral symmetry and is maintained at 109.280.
  • Example of sp3 hybridization: Ethane (C2H6)
