The following post was first posted on Blogger on Monday, 18 February 2013.

The following slides describe the three types of hybidisation that carbon atomic orbitals can undergo
  • sp3 hybridisation, as in the methane molecule
  • sp2 hybridisation, as in the ethene molecule
  • sp hybridisation, as in the ethyne molecule
