When finding the stability order of resonationg structures of certain molecules.. there is some confusion since some structures satisfy certain factors and others satisfy certain other factors. I want to know which factor has more weight to it i.e.. which factor matters the most. Can someone give me a priority order of the factors?
Here are some I know.. Please let me know if I missed any.
- More covalent bonds
- Octet config and less formal charge
- Less charge seperation
- Negative charge on electronegative atoms
- More stable carbocations.
