Bi and N form a W: An acyclic Bi–N cation (synthesized as its GaCl4− salt) was prepared from lithium N,N′,N′-tris(trimethylsilyl)hydrazide and BiCl3 by chloride abstraction. The W-shaped NNBiNN structure and the bonding of this deep blue cation, which can be regarded a bismapentazenium cation, is discussed on the basis of experimental and theoretical data.
