Resonance is a concept that describes the bonding in molecules… a. where there is more than one choice of location for a double bond as deduced from the Lewis dot structure. The true bonding is the average over all possible multiple bond locations. b. by asserting that electrons in a double bond can delocalize (spill over) onto adjacent single bonds to make a bond and a half. c. by asserting that double or triple bonds “flip” or resonate between two locations in the molecule.
