4 | sp3 | |

4 | dsp2 | dx2-y2 |

5 | sp3d | dz2 |

6 | sp3d2 (nd orbitals are involved; outer orbital complex or high-spin or spin-free complex) | dx2-dy2 and dz2 |

**What is the orientation of sp3d2 hybrid orbitals of an atom?**

For sp3d2, there are six equivalent orbitals, and VSEPR tells us that 6 electron density groups are most stable in an octahedral orientation.

### What is the difference between sp3d2 and d2 sp3?

sp3d2 hybridization involves atomic orbitals of same electron shell. d2sp3 hybridization involves atomic orbitals of two electron shells. sp3d2 hybridization involves d atomic orbitals of n electron shell. d2sp3 hybridization involves d atomic orbitals of n-1 electron shell.

### What angles are present when we have a central atom that uses sp3d2 hybridized orbitals?

Octahedral: Six electron groups involved resulting in sp3d2 hybridization, the angle between the orbitals is 90°.

**In which of the following species central atom is sp3d2 hybridised?**

Explanation. -Hence, H =6, then SbCl−25 undergoes sp3d2 hybridization.

## What is the angle between sp3 hybrid orbitals?

The new orbitals formed are called sp 3 hybrid orbitals. These are directed towards the four corners of a regular tetrahedron and make an angle of 109°28’ with one another. The angle between the sp3 hybrid orbitals is 109.28 0; Each sp 3 hybrid orbital has 25% s character and 75% p character. Example of sp 3 hybridization: ethane (C 2 H 6

## How are sp3d2 hybrid orbitals arranged in octahedral?

The sp3d2 hybrid orbitals are arranged in octahedral arrangement. These hybrid orbitals have 90o angles between two orbitals in the octahedral arrangement. The octahedral arrangement displays a square plane having four hybrid orbitals and the two remaining orbitals are oriented above and below of this square plane (perpendicular to this plane).

**What is the angle between the orbitals in a tetrahedral molecule?**

Linear: Two electron groups involved resulting in sp hybridization, the angle between the orbitals is 180°. Trigonal planar: Three electron groups involved resulting in sp2 hybridization, the angle between the orbitals is 120°. Tetrahedral: Four electron groups involved resulting in sp3 hybridization, the angle between the orbitals is 109.5°.

### How many orbitals are needed for SP³d hybridization?

Follow the same trick above to see that sp³d hybridization occurs from the mixing of 5 orbitals (1s, 3p and 1d) to achieve 5 ‘groups’, as seen in the Phosphorus pentachloride (PCl5) example below. Sp³d² hybridization occurs from the mixing of 6 orbitals (1s, 3p and 2d) to achieve 6 ‘groups’, as seen in the Sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) example below.
