Sigma and Pi Bonds

Postby Tamera Scott 1G » Mon Nov 19, 2018 1:55 pm

I know that Lavelle went over sigma and pi bonds, but I am still confused as to what the difference is between them, and their significance. How would a problem involving sigma and pi bonds show up?

Sigma bonds interact end to end, while pi bonds overlap side by side. Every bond contains one sigma bond. For example, a single bond would be one sigma bond. A double bond would be one sigma bond, one pi bond. A triple bond would be one sigma bond, two pi bonds.

Ok bonds exist with signma bonds and pi bonds are rigid whereas signma move usually in double bonds.
