An atom is the smallest constituent unit of ordinary matter that has the properties of a chemical element.
In quantum mechanics, an atomic orbital is a mathematical function that describes the wave-like behavior of either one electron or a pair of electrons in an atom.
In organic chemistry, a bent bond, also known as a banana bond, is a type of covalent chemical bond with a geometry somewhat reminiscent of a banana.
In molecular geometry, bond length or bond distance is the average distance between nuclei of two bonded atoms in a molecule.
Bond order is the number of chemical bonds between a pair of atoms.
Borane (systematically named trihydridoboron), also called borine, is an inorganic compound with the chemical formula.
Boron is a chemical element with symbol B and atomic number 5.
A carbocation (/karbɔkətaɪː'jɔ̃/) is an ion with a positively charged carbon atom.
Carbon (from carbo "coal") is a chemical element with symbol C and atomic number 6.
In chemistry, carbonium ion is any cation that has a pentavalent carbon atom, The name carbonium may also be used for the simplest member of the class, properly called methanium, where the five valences are filled with hydrogen atoms.
A chemical bond is a lasting attraction between atoms, ions or molecules that enables the formation of chemical compounds.
Diborane is the chemical compound consisting of boron and hydrogen with the formula B2H6.
Dihydrogen complexes are coordination complexes containing intact H2 as a ligand.
The electron is a subatomic particle, symbol or, whose electric charge is negative one elementary charge.
Electron deficiency occurs when a compound has too few valence electrons for the connections between atoms to be described as covalent bonds.
In chemistry, ethanium or protonated ethane is a highly reactive positive ion with formula.
Frank Albert Cotton (April 9, 1930 – February 20, 2007) was an American chemist.
Sir Geoffrey Wilkinson FRS (14 July 1921 – 26 September 1996) was a Nobel laureate English chemist who pioneered inorganic chemistry and homogeneous transition metal catalysis.
In organic chemistry, hyperconjugation is the interaction of the electrons in a sigma orbital (e.g. C–H or C–C) with an adjacent empty (or partially filled) non-bonding orbital, antibonding σ or π orbital, to give an extended molecular orbital.
Journal of Molecular Structure is a scientific journal published by Elsevier ScienceDirect since 1968.
A methyl group is an alkyl derived from methane, containing one carbon atom bonded to three hydrogen atoms — CH3.
In chemistry, a molecular orbital (MO) is a mathematical function describing the wave-like behavior of an electron in a molecule.
The octet rule is a chemical rule of thumb that reflects observation that atoms of main-group elements tend to combine in such a way that each atom has eight electrons in its valence shell, giving it the same electron configuration as a noble gas.
A rearrangement reaction is a broad class of organic reactions where the carbon skeleton of a molecule is rearranged to give a structural isomer of the original molecule.
The 3-center 4-electron (3c–4e−) bond is a model used to explain bonding in certain hypervalent molecules such as tetratomic and hexatomic interhalogen compounds, sulfur tetrafluoride, the xenon fluorides, and the bifluoride ion.
The trihydrogen cation, also known as protonated molecular hydrogen or, is one of the most abundant ions in the universe.
Trimethylaluminium is one of the simplest examples of an organoaluminium compound.
In chemistry, a valence electron is an outer shell electron that is associated with an atom, and that can participate in the formation of a chemical bond if the outer shell is not closed; in a single covalent bond, both atoms in the bond contribute one valence electron in order to form a shared pair.
In organic chemistry, the term 2-norbornyl cation (equivalent with 2-bicyclo-heptyl cation) describes one of the three carbocations formed from derivatives of norbornane.
