The nature of the multicenter, long bond in neutral phenalenyl dimers is analyzed in detail and compared to the multicenter, long bond in [TCNE](2)(2-). These dimers are prototypes of multicenter, long bond in dimers of neutral and anion radicals. This was done by examining the number of electrons (m) and atomic centers (c) involved in the long bond for these dimers, as well as identifying the dominant attractive components of their interaction energy (SOMO-SOMO bonding, dispersion, and the sum… Expand
