Experimental evidence for ‘carbon bonding’ in the solid state from charge density analysis

Author affiliations

Abstract

The validity of the newly proposed ‘carbon bonding’, an interaction where a carbon atom acts as an electrophilic site towards a variety of nucleophiles, has been investigated in the solid state. X-ray charge density analysis provides experimental evidence for this hitherto unexplored interaction and unravels its nature and strength.
