double bond

(Chemistry) a type of chemical bond consisting of two covalent bonds linking two atoms in a molecule

dou′ble bond′

a chemical linkage consisting of two covalent bonds between two atoms of a molecule, represented in chemical formulas by two lines, two dots, or four dots, as CH2=CH2; CH2:CH2; CH2::CH2.

dou·ble bond

A type of covalent bond in which two electron pairs are shared between two atoms. Each atom contributes two electrons to the bond. See more at covalent bond.
