Sigma Bonds

A type of covalent bond in which most of the electrons are located in between the nuclei formed from the overlap of either two s-orbitals or two hybrid orbitals such as sp3 or sp2 orbitals.

It is symmetrical around the imaginary line between the bonded atoms.

Most single bonds are sigma bonds.
