Q. 45

Predict the hybridisation of each carbon in the molecule of organic compound given below. Also indicate the total number of sigma and pi bonds in this molecule.



Answer :

The hybridization of Carbon 1 is sp, carbon 2 is sp, carbon 3 sp2, carbon 4 is sp3 and carbon 5 is sp2.


The triple bond has 2 pie bonds and one sigma bond.


Each double bond has one sigma and one pie bond.


Every single bond is a sigma bond.


Thus, the total number of sigma bonds is 11 and pie bonds are 4.
