## What is the general formula for Dienes?

2n + 2 ( n=D-H ) (Numerator) – 2n (Denominator) 2 ( Numerator) – 4 (Denominator) Why are cumulated Dienes less stable? Hence, the cumulated Dienes are less stable than cumulated trienes and consequently much more easily decomposed. C-C, C-O and C-H bonds are not equally reactive, thus the Dienyl group is more reactive than…
