Bondpseudorotation has been investigated so far only for a few small molecules. This work presents for the first time, the complete bondpseudorotation surface of cyclopentadienyl cations as spanned by newly developed deformation coordinates, which provide a quantitative assessment of Jahn-Teller and pseudo Jahn-Teller effects leading to bondpseudorotation. The pseudo Jahn-Teller effect turns out to be much more important than the Jahn-Teller effect despite of commonly spread assumptions.
