Inductive Effect

Postby rachana_korapati3C » Tue Dec 04, 2018 2:22 pm

What is inductive effect? And how does it relate to electronegativity?

I don't think we need to know inductive effects for the final. Was it discussed during lecture?

Inductive effect deals with the creation of a permanent dipole in a bond due to electron fluctuations throughout a molecule, it was never discussed in lecture, so I wouldn't worry about it.

As electronegativity increases, inductive properties increase.
This was mentioned in my discussion but I also don't recall the term itself being mentioned too often (if at all) in lecture. In lecture, we did learn that as electronegativity increases, stabilization is stronger, and those acids will be stronger.

So we don't need to know inductive effect at all, just the concept mentioned above? Because my TA mentioned it, but I was a bit confused by his explanation.

I consider the inductive effect as a fancy name for the same concept we already know about electronegativity and it’s effect on electron distribution. The more electronegative the atom, the more even the electron distribution is, and the more stable the molecule is. The more stable the molecule, the more acidic it is.
