Why is breaking of C-H bond given more preference over C-C bond though the bond energy of the latter is less than the first one?
In case of hydrocarbons , the c-c bond is normally safe due to following two reasons :- Difference between the electronegativity of Carbon and Hydrogen. Due to this reason the electrons of the shared pair stays closer to the C-atom which makes it easy to break the C-H bond and release hydrogen as hydronium ion H+ . 2. The carbon […]
