This organic chemistry video tutorial provides a basic introduction into drawing resonance structures. It explains how to identify the major resonance contributor as well as the minor resonance contributor based on stability.
Here are a few key concepts to keep in mind:
1. Negative charges are stabilized by electronegative atoms.
2. Neutral structures are more stable than those with separation of charges.
3. Tertiary carbocations are more stable than secondary and primary carbocations due to the inductive effect and hyperconjugation.
4. Positive charges on carbon atoms are not stable due to the octet rule.
