hybridized orbital

hybridized orbital

[′hī·brəd‚īzd ′ȯr·bəd·əl]
(physical chemistry)
A molecular orbital which is a linear combination of two or more orbitals of comparable energy (such as 2 s and 2 p orbitals), is concentrated along a certain direction in space, and participates in formation of a directed valence bond.

Several studies [2-6] showed that the presence of a lone pair of electrons in sp2 hybridized orbital of nitrogen atom of the azomethine group is of considerable chemical and biological importance.
The samples exhibit high intrinsic stress, when compared to other techniques, and it is expected that the stress influences the most external electronic states, composed of s-p hybridized orbitals. Such influences can be perceived by spectroscopic techniques through changes in the line shape spectrum, the intensities and energy peaks, and peak-to-peak energies.
