One electron in each C atom remains in an unhybridized p orbital Compounds Containing Double Bonds An sp 2 hybridized C atom has this shape. Remember there will be one electron in each of the three sp 2 lobes and one in the p orbital. Compounds Containing Double Bonds Two sp 2 hybridized C atoms plus p orbitals in proper orientation to form C=C double bond. Compounds Containing Double Bonds The portion of the double bond formed from the head-on overlap of the sp 2 hybrids is designated as a s bond. Compounds Containing

Unformatted text preview: Double Bonds The other portion of the double bond, resulting from the side-on overlap of the p orbitals, is designated as a p bond. Compounds Containing Double Bonds Thus a C=C bond looks like this and is made of two parts, one and one 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....
