Tri-Phenyl Methyl: The Radical which can be bottled

Most of the reactions in the organic chemistry there is short lived formation of radicals or carbonium ions. They are the highly reactive. Element Carbon, the element around which the whole branch of organic chemistry revolves, has 4 valency and thus forms 4 single covalent bonds. It has got 4 unpaired electrons in the sp3 configuration which means that 4 equivalent hybrid orbitals are formed by combination of 1s and three 3p orbitals in the second shell. During many reactions, one unpaired electrons remains when 1 atom attached to carbon is ripped off. This is of the form R3C where… Read More »Tri-Phenyl Methyl: The Radical which can be bottled
