sigma and Pi bonds

Postby Jose Munoz 1D » Sun Jun 03, 2018 10:05 pm

I'm still a bit confused about these two. Can some give a quick sentence in the major difference of the two? Thanks in advanced.

From my understanding, sigma bonds have atoms that interact end-to-end, and sigma bonds allow the bound atoms to ROTATE on an axes, due to the bond's cylindrical symmetry. Pi ponds, on the other hand, overlap side-by-side, and Pi bonds do NOT allow atoms to rotate, because pi ponds have electron density on each side of the axis. I hope this helped!
