(c) Assign hybridization schemes to the 3 carbon atoms.
(d) Is your molecule planar? Explain your answer.
2. In which of the following ions/molecules would you expect delocalized molecular or-
3. Consider the allyl cation, C
-bond skeleton is shown below.
Sketch the Lewis dot structure(s) you would expect to describe this cation, and use
MO theory to describe the
(It won’t be possible to satisfy the
octet rule for this cation.) What bond order would you assign to the two C-C bonds
to create a cation which satisfies the octet rule. What bond order would you assign to
the two C-C bonds?
