Conjugated Systems
1011303Conjugated SystemsDouble bonds that are separated by one single (sigma) bond are conjugated double bonds. If two double bonds are separated by more than one sigma bond, the double bonds are nonconjugated or isolated double bonds. Double bonds can be between two carbon atoms, carbon and oxygen atoms, or carbon and other heteroatoms. Conjugated systems can consist of two or more (poly) alternating double-single bond sequences. Compounds containing conjugated double bonds have different chemical and physical properties than do similar compounds with nonconjugated double bonds. Double bonds that share a common carbo…
