Radicals

Postby Kyung_Jin_Kim_1H » Sat Dec 09, 2017 9:14 pm

If a structure has a radical, does it have resonance since some bond angles will be different depending on where it's placed? Or does it not matter because resonance only has to do with the bond strength?

Yes, radicals, or unpaired single electrons, can also participate in resonance to increase their stability.
