Structural Isomerism and the Electronic Basis for Ligand Segregation on C2 Cores
One of the most fascinating trends of molecular stereochemistry is the tendency of ligands to segregate into sets when attached on carbon cores. A typical example is provided by the comparison of 1,1 and cis 1,2-difluoroethylene, henceforth referred to as G and C 1,2 difluoroethylene, respectively.
