Hybrid Resonance

Postby Samantha Burmester 3H » Sun Nov 11, 2018 6:44 pm

Hybrid resonance is just when all of the resonance structures have the same formal correct? And if one of the structures has a lower formal charge, it’s just more stable. Is there a specific name for the more stable structure?

I believe it just refers to the actual structure of the molecule which would be a hybrid of all of the resonance structures

The resonance hybrid consists of a sort of skeleton of the common features among all the resonance structures. You don't add lone pairs, but you add all other possible dashes, represented as a dotted line.

Hybrid resonance is just kind of the average of all possible resonance structures.

It's the average of all of the possible resonance structures which determines the structure
