Further scrutiny for the aniline radical cation: The author of this Correspondence claims that the original spectrometric data for 2,4,6-tri-tert-butylaniline (TBA) reported in 2012 do not correspond to a stoichiometrically pure TBA.+SbF6 salt, the quantum-chemical data do not support the reported structural data, and the interpretation of the apparent temperature-dependent structural changes in the solid state is open to interpretations other than the Jahn–Teller effect.
