Hybridization of double & triple bonds

Postby Kelly Cai 4D » Tue Dec 03, 2019 5:58 pm

A double bond, consisting of a sigma and a pi bond, is often denoted by the sigma bond and pi (atom 2p, atom 2p) if both atoms are in the second period. However if we were to label the hybridization of a triple bond, would we label the sigma bond then write pi (atom 2p, atom 2p) twice?

Yes for triple bonds you would write the pi(atom 2p, atom 2p) label twice to indicate both pi bonds.
