What is hyperconjugation?

    What is hyperconjugation? with respect to Hydrocarbons i.e. delocalisation of "pi" electrons of a multiple bond?

    I'm pretty sure that hyperconjugation refers to, sort of an inductive effect, I've still yet to research about the triple bond conjugation scenario.

    Hyperconjugation is the donation of sigma bonding orbitals into vacant orbitals adjacent to them. It's kind of a reverse inductive effect since it is donation instead of withdrawing.

    What's the deal with triple bond conjugation?

    What do you mean? It's pretty much just like double bond conjugation. But hyperconjugation is very different.
