Explain, how is the electronegativity


Explain, how is the electronegativity of carbon atoms related to their state of hybridisation in an organic compound?


Hybridization for carbon in organic compounds is of three types, sp, sp2 and sp3. More the ā€˜sā€™ character more is the electronegativity of the carbon as ā€˜sā€™ orbitals are

closer to the nucleus, hence electrons held more closely.
