I am studying a molecule which adsorbs via the carboxylate group (COO) onto the Cu(110) surface. For this molecule I am trying to figure out the hybridization of the binding O atom ( sp2 or sp3 ? ). Could Bader analysis be used to determine the hybridization type ? Can the sp2 or sp3 lobes be vizualized or localized through Bader analysis ?
Thank you very much for any answer.
