Which bond is more reactive sigma or pi bond??

Dear Student

pie bonds are more reactive than sigma bonds because it is easier to break pie bonds since, these are not held tightly by the nuclei. 
pie bonds are formed by the sideways overlap of atomic orbitals, or p-orbitals, thus the electrons are off to the side of the line joining the nuclei. Because of the lesser extent of overlapping, these are comparatively weaker than the sigma bonds. Since, these are not not strongly attracted to the nucleus, so the other reactants can easily attack these electrons, making them more reactive than the sigma bonds.

For difference between pie-bonds and sigma-bonds, kindly refer to the following link -
