Pi Bonding

Postby Diana A 2L » Sun Nov 24, 2019 11:50 pm

Do pi bonds also occur in higher level subshells like the f-subshell? Or is there a different type of bond beyond that?

Ok bonds relate to anything that has to do with double or triple bonds. If there is a double bond or triple bond there is a pi bond

Only s orbitals are unable to form pi bonds because of their lack of angular nodes. "f" electrons rarely participate in bonding because they are well-shielded, but pi bonds can be created when f electrons (specifically in the actinides) form complexes.

Pi bonds exist in all double and triple bonds

S orbitals are the only orbital that are unable to form pi bonds because they can rotate no matter what due to the spherical structure. P/d/f orbitals can form pi bonds because they can form double and triple bonds. Therefore, yes, f orbitals can contain pi bonds.

When we were drawing out how the pi bonds looked on molecules, we drew two regions for the pi (one on top of the molecule and one on the bottom) but this only represented a single pi bond and not two, can someone explain the logic behind this?

Can we tell what type of hybridization state an element has if they have a pi bond?
