Delocalized Chemical Bonding and Electronic Effects
By the end of this chapter you should be familiar with
- Interaction between orbitals over many bonds, stabilization by the sharing of electrons over molecules.
- Molecular shape and structure that determine reactivity and represent one aspect of structure by curly arrows.
- The effects that delocalized electrons have on the reactivity of organic compounds.
- Resonance, resonance effects, hyperconjugation tautomerism, inductive, electromeric, and steric effect and hydrogen bonding, and their role on chemical reactivity.
Electrons that are restricted to a particular region are called localized electrons. The bonding in most of the organic compounds can be described ...
