Abstract

The conventional resonance model describes protonated carbonyls, imines, and thiocarbonyls by a superposition of two structures, one pi polar-covalent and the other of carbenium type. The validity of this model is clearly supported by high level valence bond calculations, giving a 32% weight for the carbenium form in protonated carbonyl, 19% in protonated formamine and thioformaldehyde. The carbenium form is further stabilized by pi-donating substituents. Solvation effects do not fundamentally change the gas-phase picture.
