Abstract

Changing the state: The electrophilicity of benzhydryl cations (see formula) towards neutral amine nucleophiles in the gas phase was determined. It was found that the kinetics of electrophile-nucleophile gas-phase reactions correlate well with values known in solution although the actual electrophilicity parameters are considerably smaller in the gas phase.
