What is the order of stability of carbanion?


Open in App
Solution

  1. A carbanion is an organic species that contains four pairs of electrons and a negative charge on any one of the center carbon atoms.
  2. The stability of carbanion is increased due to the electron-withdrawing inductive group.
  3. But the stability decreases due to the electron-donating inductive group.
  4. The stability of carbanion is also inversely proportional to the atom that holds the negative charge on it.
  5. An increase in the resonance structure of the compound will increase the stability of the carbanion.
  6. The carbanion stability order is as follows:Tertiary<Secondary<Primary
