Dear Godre,


Hückel’s Rule: The (4n + 2) p Electron Rule

For  monocyclic planar compounds in which each atom has a p orbital (as in benzene) Hückel showed that compounds with (4n + 2) p electrons, where n = 0, 1, 2, 3 etc, would have closed shells of delocalised p electrons and should show exceptional stability (high resonance energy º “aromatic”).

i.e. planar monocycles with 2, 6, 10, 14….delocalised p electrons should be “aromatic”.

i.e. p electrons are delocalised over the entire ring and the compound is thereby stabilised by the delocalisation.

-R effect of -COOR is greater than -COOH. What is the best reason behind it.
Simple answer: in Ester that is -COOR there is R group that is the combination carbon and hydrogen atoms. And -R group always shows +R effect thus decreases -R effect.

R is a alkyl group and so it is a electron pushing group and so t shows -R effect much better than H COO

since “R”(Alkyl) group is +R group so decrease -R effect while H doesnot hence -R effect of -COOR is greater than -COOH.
