How do organic compounds achieve stability?

Important Concept for Organic Chemistry

Organic Chemistry
Two main ways organic compounds achieve stability:






Electrons are delocalized to form different resonance structures, which lowers the energy level of the organic compound. This contributes to stability.

Dispersion of charge

Carbocation is electron deficient while R groups are electron-donating. Thus the more R groups are bonded to the carbocation, the more stable (less electron deficient) the carbocation will be.
