Triple bond?

Postby Stacey Phan 2I » Thu Nov 12, 2020 8:24 am

If single bond is sigma bond and double bond is pi bond, what is a triple bond?

A triple bond has one sigma and one pi bond

Basically, multiple bonds have both sigma and pi bonds.

Single bond: 1 sigma
Double bond: 1 sigma 1 pi
Triple bond: 1 sigma 2 pi
Quadruple bond: 1 sigma 2 pi 1 delta

A triple is one sigma and two pi bonds.

A double bond would have one sigma and one pi bond, not just one pi bond. A triple bond would then have one sigma bond and two pi bonds.

I had the same question! Thank you for posting, I definitely have a better understanding now.

So just to clarify, as the bond numbers increase (etc. single to triple), the number of sigma bonds stay the same and pi and delta increase?

Yes, sigma bonds stay the same while pi bonds would increase, as bond order increases.

What exactly is a delta bond? Have we gone over this?

I think a delta bond occurs when all four lobes of a d orbitals interact with one another

What is an example of a molecule that exhibits a delta bond?

For triple bonds, the first bond is a Sigma bond after that the other two bonds are Pi bonds. So, there would be one Sigma and two Pi bonds in a triple bond

I don't think we need to know this but apparently Re2Cl8 2- ion has a delta bond .

I think everyone has answered it already but just to clarify it, anything that's more than double bond will be a combination of both sigma and pi bond!

All bonds have at least one sigma bond. A double bond would have a sigma bond and a pi bond. A triple bond would have a sigma bond and two pi bonds.

Every bond has a sigma bond and then add pi bonds accordingly so the sum of the sigma and the pi bounds should equal the total amount of bonds on the given atom.

In a triple bond, is there a way of knowing which specific bond is a sigma or a pi bond? Do we even need to know how to do this?

That makes sense. Thank you for clarifying.

A triple bond has 1 sigma bond and two pi bonds. This is because the sigma bond occupies the internuclear axis so there can't be more than one sigma bond. Therefore in a triple bond, there are 2 more pi bonds above and below the internuclear axis.
