Feeling the heat: The aniline radical cation TBA.+ (TBA=2,4,6-tBu3C6H2NH2) has been successfully stabilized both in solution and in the solid state. It exists as two isomers in the crystal lattice that interchange with temperature, and features an exceptionally long C[BOND]N bond beyond theoretical prediction.
