The B2 molecule

  1. Feb 8, 2016 #1
    Guys I studied Molecular orbital theory based on wave mechanics in lower level as i don't know what is wave mechanics so i saw molecular orbital diagram of boron di atomic molecule in which there are two pi molecular orbitals so my first question was that there must be first a sigma molecular orbital then there should be a pi molecular orbital and when i searched on B2 molecule i didn't got its existence any where. So does it exist or not?

    You get to a high enough temperature, yes.
