Triple bond

A triple bond in chemistry is a chemical bond between two atoms involving six bonding electrons instead of the usual two in a covalent single bond. The most common triple bond, that between two carbon atoms, can be found in alkynes. Other functional groups containing a triple bond are cyanides and isocyanides. Some diatomic molecules, such as dinitrogen and carbon monoxide, are also triple bonded. In skeletal formula the triple bond is drawn as three parallel lines (≡) between the two connected atoms. Triple bonds are stronger than the equivalent single bonds or double bonds, with a bond order of three.
