Too much heat in non-covalent complexes leads to non-ergodic behavior in ion pairs of nitrogen-containing cations with triflate counterions. In their Communication on page 10050 ff., D. Schröder et al. show by means of infrared spectroscopy of mass-selected ions that the effect is caused by incomplete intramolecular vibrational energy distribution, leading to a local “overheating” of the triflate counterions.
