stabilization energy

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

The amount by which the energy of a delocalized chemical structure is less than the theoretical energy of a structure with localized bonds. It is obtained by subtracting the experimental heat of formation of the compound (in kJ mol−1) from that calculated on the basis of a classical structure with localized bonds.
