Unformatted text preview: orbital p-orbital bonding antibonding Analogous orbital interactions are not possible for the methyl radical since there is no C—C bond lined up next to the p-orbital. The orbital interaction shown (delocalization through hyperconjugation) allows more electrons to go down in energy than go up (two in the bonding orbital shown compared to only one in the antibonding orbital). node...
