  • Q:

    Formaldehyde is considered the most simple carbonyl molecule, with a C=O bond and two hydrogen atoms bound to carbon. For the oxygen, which orbitals have become hybridized (by VSEPR theory) to be in such a bond with carbon?

     

    A

    one 2s and one 2p orbital

    B

    one 2s and two 2p orbitals

    C

    two 2s and two 2p orbitals

    D

    No orbitals are hybridized in the structure
