  3. 12, 3
  4. 12, 6
  5. None of the above / More than one of the above

The numbers of sigma and pi bonds in benzene are 12, 3. There are 6 C-H and 6 C-C bonds, just like in the structure. As a result, there are 12 sigma bonds. In benzene, there are three C=C pi bonds. Therefore, there are a total of 12 sigma bonds and 3 pi bonds. Thus, there are 15 covalent bonds in benzene.

The numbers of sigma and pi bonds in benzene are

  • The most basic aromatic hydrocarbon is benzene.
  • Faraday discovered it in 1825.
  • C6H6 is a molecular formula.
  • 78.11 g/mol is the molar mass.
  • 5.5 °C is the melting point.
  • 80oC is the boiling point.
  • It is extremely stable and highly combustible.
  • It is present at room temperature in liquid condition.
  • It has no color.
  • It is an organic component of crude oil utilized in the dry cleaning industry as a solvent for fats, resins, and other materials.
  • It is also known as "Benzol" and used as motor fuel.
  • It has a high level of toxicity.
  • Its excessive use raises the risk of cancer and contributes to bone marrow failure.
  • The continuous cyclic pi link between the carbon atoms in benzene is what gives it its aromatic properties.
  • Basically, it's used to make polystyrene.
