Double/Triple Bonds

Postby Natalie_Martinez_1I » Mon May 28, 2018 7:44 pm

Are there only certain atoms that can triple/double bond or how can we determine which can?

All atoms that have enough electrons to form triple and double bonds can form them. However, whether they form them or not is dependent on the formal charge of the molecule. (You try to minimize the amount of formal charges that arn't zero)

All atoms have the capacity but it depends on the whole molecule. You want to make it as stable as possible.

You use double/triple bonds to fulfill the octet rule. So, if 2 atoms do not have 8 valence electrons yet, and they both have an unbonded electron, you can form a double/triple bond between them.

There is no certainty of any atom needing a certain number of bonds. Usually, triple or double bonds are created in order to fulfill the octet rule. However, just because you can make those bonds, it is necessary to create a structure that will be the most stable and have a formal charge of zero.

Any atom can produce a double or triple bond if it contains enough electrons and if it would reduce the formal charge.

It will also form double or triple bonds to become more stable

most atoms are capable of having double or triple bonds. It's just a matter of oxidation states and formal charges in order to create the most stable structure of the compound. They are usually added to complete the octet of atoms.

Any atom has the ability to form multiple bonds. you just have to keep in mind that not all atoms can have expanded orbitals.
