Structure of Amines Preparation and Properties

Structure of Amines Preparation and Properties

→ In amines, nitrogen atom undergoes sp3 hybridisation forming four sp3 hybrid orbitais. Three of these orbitais have unpaired electrons and overlap with carbon atom of alkyl group or orbital of hydrogen atom.

Structure of Amines Preparation and Properties

→ The fourth hybrid orbital contains a lone pair of electron because of the presence of these bonds, the geometry of the molecule is pyramidal and the bond angle is less than 109.5°.
