Abstract

The intramolecular triarylmethane-methylium complex with an averaged C2v-symmetry was successfully generated by N-methylation of the acridine-acridan hybrid. Theoretical calculation and VT-NMR analyses in solution indicate the unsymmetric geometry for the three-center bond, which was finally confirmed crystallographically. Significant degree of CT interaction is induced through the very short C-H⋯C+ contact.
