Delocalization of Charge

Postby Gurshaan Nagra 2F » Mon Dec 04, 2017 2:44 pm

There was a question on the test about the delocalized pi bonding.
Today in lecture, Dr. Lavelle was discussing delocalization of charges due to resonance.
Are these ideas like the same thing or are they different, if they are different could you explain the difference.

These are the same ideas. When there is resonance the bond is delocalized.

Delocalized charges occur when there is resonance, as the charge occurs in different spots due to the actual structure being a combination of all its resonance structures. It is therefore delocalized.
