# Azobenzene: Bond Angles, Hybridization, Geometry

CHEM-BF9HQ5

Below is a good Lewis structure of azobenzene. Use it as a starting point to tell which of the statements that follow are true.

Select ALL that apply.

A

Azobenzene has 12 atoms with trigonal planar electron pair geometry.

B

The C-N-N bond angles are close to 180${ }^{ \circ }$.

C

All of the non-hydrogen atoms in azobenzene are ${ sp }^{ 2 }$ hybridized.

D

Azobenzene can exist as cis and trans isomers.

E

The molecular geometry about the nitrogen atoms is best described as bent.

F

The two nitrogen atoms and the carbon atoms that they are attached to are always in the same plane.
