Why carbon to carbon tripple bomd is stronger than single bond

Asked by Anjishnu Bhattacharjee | 3rd Feb, 2011, 12:00: AM

Expert Answer:

Dear Student
In the triple bond there is a region of greater inter-atomic electron density. 
This means that the electrons binding multiple bonded atoms are more vulnerable to attack by electron-seeking species.

 We hope that clarifies your query.
