pi bonds and sigma bonds

Postby Priscilla Okaiteye » Sun Jun 10, 2018 10:38 pm

Hi. I am still having trouble with Pi bonds and sigma bonds how do you draw them out on your own, how do you recognize which is which. Does anyone have a video or resource they use to understand this?

Hi, I found a good link that might help

But i like to think of it as a sigma bond is a single bond, whereas a pi bond is the second or third bond of the ligand. This video goes more in depth about it. Hope that helps!

All bonds have one sigma bond. Double bonds have one sigma bond and one pi bond. Triple bonds have one sigma bond and 2 pi bonds.

Every bond will have at least one sigma bond.
