sigma, pi bonds rotation

Postby rkang00 » Sat Nov 17, 2018 12:53 pm

How does a sigma or pi bond being able to/unable to rotate influence bonding? Why is it important to note?

A pi bond influences rotation because it makes it so the molecule is unable to rotate since there is electron density on both sides of the internuclear axis. If the molecule would try to rotate around the bond it would break the bond.

When it cannot rotate around, the bond ends up breaking.
