Onium Ion-assisted Organic Reactions Through Cation–π Interactions

The cation–π interaction is an attractive noncovalent interaction between a cation and a π-face. Owing to the stronger interaction energy than those of the other π interactions, such as π–π and CH–π interactions, the cation–π interaction has recently been recognized as a new tool for controlling the regio- and stereoselectivities in various types of organic reactions. This chapter attempts to cover a variety of organic reactions assisted by interactions between unreactive onium ions and π-faces, which will provide comprehensive knowledge on the role of cation–π interactions in organic synthesis.
