Hyperconjugation – concept clarification

As I currently understand it, Hyperconjugation occurs in carbocations and alkenes via the interaction of the electrons in the MO of a C-H bond at an adjacent carbon to bring stability to the system.The interaction requires for in phase overlap and occurs when the C-H bond is in the same plane as the vacant p […]
