In sigma bonds, the overlapping of orbitals can be two hybrid orbitals or one hybrid and one pure orbital or two pure orbitals. In pi bonds, the overlapping of orbitals is always two pure (i.e., unhybridized) orbitals. Sigma bonds permit free rotation. Pi bonds restrict free rotation. Only sigma bond...Read More
