Out of (CH3)3C- and (CH3)2CH- carboanion, which is more stable and why?


(CH3)2CH- because neighbouring protons stabilise a negative charge better than neighbouring carbon. (The neighbouring C-H sigma bonds have an overlap of electron density with the lone pair in the p-orbital, which is destabilising.)
