what is mean by +I inductive effect and why it is responsible for basicity of amines?

Asked by  | 1st Apr, 2013, 10:44: PM

Expert Answer:

Inductive effect is the process of electron displacement of electrons along the chain of carbon atoms due to the presence of a polar covalent bond at one end of the chain. Atoms or groups which push electron density away from themselves exhibit positive Inductive effect (+I). These atoms or groups have a greater electron releasing power than hydrogen.
