sigma bond


sigma bond

      in chemistry, a mechanism by which two atoms are held together as the result of the forces operating between them and a pair of electrons regarded as shared by them. In a sigma bond, the electron pair occupies an orbital—a region of space associated with a particular value of the energy of the system—located mainly between the two atoms and symmetrically distributed about the line determined by their nuclei.
