Compounds Containing Double Bonds Thus a C=C bond looks like this and is made of two parts, one σ and one π bond. Compounds Containing Triple Bonds Ethyne or acetylene, C 2 H 2 , is the simplest triple bond containing organic compound. Lewis Dot Formula N = 2(8) + 2(2) = 20 A = 2(4) + 2(1) =10 S = 10 Compound must have a triple bond to obey octet rule.

Unformatted text preview: Two of the electrons are in sp hybrids. Two electrons remain in unhybridized p orbitals. Compounds Containing Triple Bonds A bond results from the head-on overlap of two sp hybrid orbitals. Compounds Containing Triple Bonds The unhybridized p orbitals form two p bonds. Compounds Containing Triple Bonds The final result is a bond that looks like this. Summary of Electronic & Molecular Geometries Synthesis Question...
