Radical Resonance for Allylic and Benzylic Radicals by Leah Fisch

When you think of resonance, you’re likely thinking of 2 electrons as a lone pair or pi bond. But radicals, or unpaired single electrons can also participate in resonance to increase their stability.

Video 4 shows you how to draw the ‘fishhook’ resonance for allylic and benzylic radical structures
