what is dsp 2 hybridization

Hi Harschelle,
In dsp2 hybridization, one d-orbital [which is d(x2–y2)] is involved in hybridization with one sandtwo p-orbital. This leads to the square planar geometry.
Few compounds undergoing this hybridization are [Ni (CN)4] 2– and [PtCl4]2-.
Hope, this answers your question.
