Three Electron Bond, A New Paradigm in Organic Chemistry- A Review

Author(s) :Puja Mishra; Souvik Basak*

Although chemical bonds in organic chemistry are mainly comprised of two electrons, spectroscopic and other evidence have confirmed that some bond may have three electron characteristics. These bonds, although not common in nature, may come into play when atoms having specific electronegative difference conjoin to form bonds. The lone pair of electrons on such atoms may be mobile following resonance shift between the epicenters and thus odd electron impart certain covalent character onto the bond already formed between the atoms.
