VALENCE BOND THEORY (VBT) & HYBRIDIZATION

The valence bond theory was proposed by Heitler and London to explain the formation of covalent bond quantitatively using quantum mechanics. Later on, Linus Pauling improved this theory by introducing the concept of hybridization.

What is hybridization?

The intermixing of two or more pure atomic orbitals of an atom with almost same energy to give same number of identical and degenerate new type of orbitals is known as hybridization.

The new orbitals formed are also known as hybrid orbitals.
