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.
For even more on radicals, read Free Radicals in Organic Chemistry – Reactions, Resonance, Stability, Hybridization.
