Carbenium ion
Carbocation that has at least one important contributing structure containing a tervalent carbon atom with a vacant p-orbital. Common examples are even-electron hypovalent ions with the charge formally localized on a carbon atom, with general formula R1R2R3C+ where the R groups are any monovalent organic structure.
