Exploiting electronic strategies to stabilize a planar tetracoordinate carbon in cyclic aromatic hydrocarbons

Author affiliations

Abstract

A new approach to stabilize compounds containing a planar tetracoordinate carbon (ptC), embedded in aromatic hydrocarbons, is presented herein. This is achieved by using ligands that promote the formation of a 3c–2e σ-bond with the ptC under two conditions: without altering the sp2 hybridization of the aromatic carbons; and containing empty orbitals perpendicular to the aromatic ring to participate in the aromatic π-electronic delocalization.
