Sigma (σ) bonds are the single bonds in molecules. Also, recall that a double bond is composed of 1 σ bond and 1 π bond and a triple bond is composed of 1 σ bond and 2 π bonds. This means in the given molecule:
a. How many δ bonds and π bonds exist in vitamin B6?
b. Give approximate values for the bond angles marked a through g in the structure.
c. How many carbon atoms are sp2 hybridized?
d. How many carbon, oxygen, and nitrogen atoms are sp3 hybridized?
e. Does vitamin B6 exhibit delocalized π bonding? Explain
