Unformatted text preview: not Csp2-Csp2 bonds. (4 points) CH 3 H 3 C CH 3 H 3 C CH 3 H 3 C CH 3 H 3 C x Bronsted-Lowry S O O OH O S O O OH O CH 3 H 3 C CH 3 H 3 C CH 3 H 3 C CH 3 H 3 C The sp3 orbitals combine head on to form a sigma bond, therefore rotation does not disturb the overlap and consequential bond formation The same is true for the sp3 orbitals in this system, but in addition there are two p-orbitals next to each other which form a pi bond side on. When one is twisted out of the plane, overlap is lost and the pi bond is broken. Good overlap No overlap, bond broken. x...
