Hybridization Scholarly Peer-review Journal

Hybridization happens when atomic orbitals mix to form a new atomic orbital. The new orbital can hold the same total number of electrons as the old ones. The properties and energy of the new, hybridized orbital are an 'average' of the original unhybridized orbitals. The concept of hybridization was introduced because it was the best explanation for the fact that all the C - H bonds in molecules like methane are identical. In chemistry, orbital hybridisation is the concept of mixing atomic orbitals into new hybrid orbitals suitable for the pairing of electrons to form chemical bonds in valence bond theory.
