The resonance effect is a chemical phenomenon observed in compounds characteristic of double bonds of organic compounds. Resonance effect describes the polarity produced in a molecule by interaction between a lone pair electron and a pi bond or the interaction of two pi bonds in adjacent atoms. It is usually found in molecules with conjugated double bonds or in molecules having at least one lone pair and one double bond. Understanding resonance is important in understanding stability of the compound and its energy state.
There are two types of Resonance effects namely
1. Positive resonance effect (eg. -OH, -SH, -OR,-SR)
2. Negative resonance effect (eg. -NO2, C=O, -COOH, -C≡N).
