Homework Help: Stability of carbocation

  1. Nov 21, 2008 #1

    Which one of these alkyl halides forms the most stable carbocation in a E1 reaction?

    Not II because it has an even number of delocalized electron pairs. Isn't I, IV and V the same?

    Which one is the most stable; vinylic carbocation, allylic carbocation, secondary alkyl carbocation, or aromatic carbocation? I, IV and V are not the same.
