Yes I believe you are correct Dr. Bob. the fourth one is not a resonance, as they are different structures. Thanks again!
In terms of aromatic compounds, how do I determine which pairs of structures are correct representations of resonance forms? For example in these structures: img33.imageshack.us/img33/2756/70725074.jpg I know there has to be a single bond, double bond, single bond pattern. But...
Thank you! Especially for the source, it has helped my understanding for SN1 and SN2 mechanisms.
If there was a reaction between organic compounds: OH + Cl --> O + HCl, how would I determine which atoms is the nucleophile (O, Cl, or H)? Here is a picture of the reaction: img33.imageshack.us/img33/3923/29529709.jpg From my understanding, a nucleophile is an electron ...
Thank you for clarifying! I understand this concept now.
Do hybrid orbitals (such as sp, sp2, sp3) possess higher energy than unhybridized ones (such as 2s, 2p)?
