  • Q:

    In each molecule below, a carbocation is formed when the alcohol group is removed. Which of the following best describes the stabilities of the carbocations?



     

    A

    The carbocation of Alcohol A is more stable than the carbocation of Alcohol B since it is non-resonance stabilized

    B

    The carbocation of Alcohol A is less stable than the carbocation of Alcohol B since it is resonance de-stabilized

    C

    The carbocation of Alcohol B is more stable than the carbocation of Alcohol A since it is a resonance stabilized primary carbocation

    D

    The carbocation of Alcohol B is less stable than the carbocation of Alcohol A since it is a resonance stabilized primary carbocation
