Electronic Displacement Effect

The electronic displacement effect refers to the movement of electrons within a molecule or an atom in response to the presence of an electric field or the introduction of an electronegative or electron-donating group. It is a phenomenon commonly observed in organic chemistry. In a molecule, electrons are not always evenly distributed due to differences in electronegativity or the presence of functional groups. When an external electric field or an electronegative/electron-donating group is introduced, it can influence the distribution of electrons, causing them to shift within the molecule.
