Base-Displacement Reactions and Electron Conduction in Alkali Metals
The donor-acceptor complexes of Chapter 20 were usually formed by reacting a neutral electron donor Ẍ with a neutral electron acceptor R-Y. We have suggested that it may be a good approximation to represent the formation of the complex as follows, in which we have delocalized a non-bonding electron from Ẍ into a vacant bonding X-R orbital.
