The revitalized concept of “coordination at carbon” allows relationships between seemingly unrelated families of carbon-centered compounds to be discovered generating fascinating patchwork families of compounds. It is shown how olefins and cyclopropanes can be regarded as donors for carbon acceptors C1, C2, and C3. Through this approach, hydrocarbons such as spiropentane and dicyclopropylidene are found to be counterparts of the bis-ylidic carbodiphosphoranes and the corresponding mixed mono-ylidic systems.
