This article describes the concept of stereoelectronic effects in fundamental organic chemistry and summarizes such specific phenomenon through formation of covalent bonds, resonance structures, rearrangement of carbocations, formation of enolate anions, bimolecular nucleophilic substitution of haloalkanes, elimination of halocyclohexanes, and electrophilic addition of cyclohexenes.

Key words: Stereochemistry, Stereoelectronic effect, Orbital orientation
