The other bonds are unhybridized p-orbitals. * Under most circumstances, non-bonding electron pairs on the central atom are hybridized. *Sigma bonds, σ , are bonds from hybridized orbitals and pi bonds, π , are unhybridized p-orbitals. Example: Ethene (Ethylene) Each carbon is sp 2 hybridized. On your Own: Try this for ethyne HCCH C C H H H H σ σ σ σ σ π...
