Resonance and Naming

Postby 405289292 » Sat Nov 23, 2019 2:47 pm

Does resonance have the potential to affect the way we name chemical compounds?

Resonance should not affect the way we name chemical compounds in this course.

No, it is the same compound.

No, resonance just refers to variations in writing the structures.

Remember that resonance gives partial double bond characteristics to all surrounding atoms. No, it will not affect the naming.

No, because it is the same compound and resonance isn't reality. Reality is the intermediate of all the resonance structures.

No, because it is the same structure it has the same name.

Resonance should not affect how we name a compound. However, having different versions of the compound's composition (such as through cisplatin and transplatin) can affect naming of a compound.

Should we be using the electronic or molecular geometry name?
