Unformatted text preview: The strongest polarization occurs in the C-F bond resulting in a net positive charge on the !-carbon . C C F H H H H H ! # + In turn, the positive charge on the !-carbon polarizes electrons in the C-C bond leading to a small positive charge on the -carbon . ! + The polarization of charge through sigma bonds due to electronegativity differences is called the inductive effect . Inductive effects weaken as the distance from the substituent increases. C C C X ! ! + ! + ! +...
