hybridization of some compounds?
« on: November 16, 2004, 06:55:40 AM »
H2C=C=CH2:
is the second carbon sp-hybridized?


:CH2

what about the spin-paired and spin-unpaired hybridization of carbon

the Carbon 2 is SP hybridized
while Carbons 1 and 3 are both SP2 hybridized

The last carbon is hexavalent.
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex

Depends whether you drew a singlet or triplet carbene.
