Hello, I am currently taking Organic Chemistry and was wondering what is the relationship between bond length, hybridization, and resonance? In other words, do some hybridization have smaller bond length? How is that affected by resonance?
smaller than a double bond?actually resonance governs the stability of a particular compound.So due to resonance there may be a partial double bond character induced eg. an amino group.Whenever there will be a partial double bond character, the bond length will decrease.
As for the amino group there is a partial double bond between the carbon and the NH2 group because the lone pair of nitrogen takes part in resonance.So the bond length of C-NH2 group becomes smaller.
smaller than a double bond?
