Triple Bond

Science / Chemistry / Triple Bond: A covalent bond that involves 3 bonding pairs. In the valence bond theory, one of the bonds in a triple bond is a sigma bond and the other two are pi bonds. For example, the central bond in acetylene MORE

Pi Bond

Science / Chemistry / Pi Bond: In the valence bond theory, a pi bond is a valence bond formed by side-by-side overlap of p orbitals on two bonded atoms. In most multiple bonds, the first bond is a sigma bond and all of the others a MORE

Sigma Bond

Science / Chemistry / Sigma Bond: In the valence bond theory, a sigma bond is a valence bond that is symmetrical around the imaginary line between the bonded atoms. Most single bonds are sigma bonds. MORE

Perpetual Bond

Business / Finance / Perpetual Bond: Nonredeemable bond with no maturity date that pays regular interest rates indefinitely. MORE

Pickup Bond

Business / Finance / Pickup Bond: A bond with a relatively high coupon that is close to the date at which it is callable, meaning that a fall in interest rates will most likely cause early redemption of the bond at a premium. MORE

Polar Bond

Science / Chemistry / Polar Bond: A bond involving electrons that are unequally shared. Polar bonds can be thought of as intermediate between the extremes represented by covalent bonds and ionic bonds. MORE
