my doubt is why transition state is sp2 hybridised?
@Nishant-Thakre In amine inversion, lone pair keeps shifting its position . if for instance, if it is at the north pole after inversion , it goes to
the south pole . This is a amazing phenomenon known as quantum mechanical tunneling
As we all know , amine is sp3 hybridised and the transition state is sp2 hybridised as the lone pair enters the nucleus leaving behind a vacant orbital .
And after some time , the lone pair pops out of the other side . Since , the inverted amine is an enantiomer . the energy remains the same .
