Resonance Structures Question

Postby Natalie Yakobian » Fri Oct 16, 2015 10:31 am

I was wondering if someone could please explain the concept of a partial double bond?
Thanks so much.

If my understanding is correct there must be more than one partial double bond in any given molecule and what happens here is that electrons are shared between the two bonds and at any given moment could be found in either location as opposed to a regular double bond where two electron pairs are shared between two specific atoms.
