CH 4 HW 4.41 6TH EDITION

Acrylonitrile, CH2CHCN, is used in the synthesis of acrylic fibers (polyacrylonitriles), such as Orlon. Write the Lewis structure of acrylonitrile and describe the hybrid orbitals on each carbon atom. What are the approximate values of the bond angles?

Is the CN bond usually a triple bond?

In acrylonitrile, yes, the C-N bond is a triple bond. However not every C-N bond has to be a triple bond (eg. Methylamine)
