### Pi bonds

Can someone explain the relationship between hybridization and pi bonds?

### Re: 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).
