Question

# The stability of the carbocation decreases in the order:

A
R2CH+>R3C+>RCH+2>CH+3
B
R3C+>R2CH+>RCH+2>CH+3
C
CH+3>R2CH+>RCH+2>R3C+
D
CH+3>RCH+2>R2CH+>R3C+

Solution

## The correct option is B $$R_{3}C^{+}>R_{2}CH^{+}>RCH_{2}^{+}>CH_{3}^{+}$$The carbocation with a maximum number of alkyl groups (-R) is more stable because of $$+I$$ effect. Order of stability of carbocation is $$3^{o}> 2^{o}> 1^{o}>$$ methyl . And also $$3^o$$ carbocation has the highest hyperconjugative structures.Chemistry
