Main Question or Discussion Point
Hey, could anybody plz explain what are delta bonds, how and why are they formed?
Could you give some examples plz? And are their any other sort of bonds, other than sigma, pi and delta? If so, could you explain them too, plz?TRCSF said:You know what sigma bonds are, a bond between two s-orbitals, or between an s-orbital and a p-orbital, etc? And a pi bond is between two p-orbitals, or between two lobes of d-orbitals, right? A delta bond is between all four lobes of two d-orbitals. Fairly rare and not a very strong interaction from what I understand.
