Pi bonds

Postby Malia Shitabata 1F » Wed Dec 04, 2019 9:46 pm

Can someone explain the relationship between hybridization and pi bonds?

pi orbitals are also involved in the mixing of orbitals that occurs when the creation of hybridized orbitals happen. It is important to note that a pi bond occurs between two overlapping p-bonds, and no s-bonds, to my knowledge, are involved in pi bonds. So, for example a pi bond between two carbons in a given chemical structure would be (C2p,C2p).
