Give three points of differences between


Give three points of differences between the inductive effect and resonance effect.


1. In the inductive effect, the transmission of the electron is only from sigma bond whereas in resonance effect the transmission occurs from both sigma and pi bond.

2. It is possible when the polarization of bond takes place whereas the resonance effect is possible only if the system is conjugated.

3. Electronegativity plays role in inductive effect whereas in resonance effect more number of an alternative double bond will lead to more resonating structure and hence more stability.
