The Evaluation of Empirical Resonance Energies as Reaction Enthalpies with Particular Reference to Benzene.
George, Philip; And Others
Journal of Chemical Education, v61 n3 p225-27 Mar 1984
Discusses the nature of experimental resonance energy, explaining how its magnitude depends upon choice of reference molecules from which bond energies are derived. Also explains how it can be evaluated more simply, without recourse to bond energies, as enthalpy change for a reaction predetermined by choice of reference molecules. (JN)
