bonds relating to the internuclear axis
Posted: Tue Nov 28, 2017 5:27 pm
Can someone confirm my thought process about this? So sigma bonds have electron density with symmetry around the internuclear axis like a single stick which allows it to rotate, but pi bonds are an addition on the side of the internuclear axis which prevents rotation right? Is it due to the face that the p orbital has more lobes than the s orbital?
