Pi Bonds

Postby Daniel Hernandez 1G » Sun Nov 29, 2020 8:30 pm

Are pi bonds applicable to all types of bonds or solely covalent bonds?

Just covalent bonds, since bonded ions don't share electrons as much as they exchange them, thus eliminating the need to use standard orbital theory to understand the way in which they bond.

Hello, Pi bonds are solely applicable to covalent bonds! In essence, they are covalent bonds thare able to form into double or triple bonds, but do not form into single bonds.

I was wondering why Pi bonds are specifically sideways overlapping?

I think it has something to do with the fact that when they overlap this way, the axes of each molecule remain parallel to each other. Because of this, pi-bonds are always weaker than sigma-bonds since there's less material overlapping. Though why they were categorized this way I don't know.

Hi,

From what I know, it is just covalent bonds. This is because bonded ions will not be able to share electrons as much as they have the ability to exchange them.

Pi bonds refer to covalent bonds because pi bonds represent the sharing of orbitals (usually p-orbitals) and covalent bonding is when electrons are shared as opposed to ionic bonds in which electrons are transfered. Hope this helps!

Pi bonds are only applicable to covalent bonds.

Pi bonds are only applicable to covalent bonds, since ions don't share electrons and form bonds.

Just covalent bonds because in covalent bonds, electrons are shared thus, orbitals are overlapped so they can share. But with ionic bonds, the electrons are transferred from one element to the next so there is essentially no sharing

Pi bonds by nature can only apply to covalent bonds. Ionic bonds don't engage in sigma or pi bonds.

Yes, pi bonds are covalent chemical bonds. Two lobes of an orbital overlap on another atom laterally. They typically form in double and triple bonds, but rarely in single bonds.

Pi bonds only apply to covalent bonds!
