Bond Lengths in a Carbocation Explained in terms of Covalent Radius, Ground State Bohr Radius and the Golden Ratio

Authors: Raji Heyrovska

The author has shown previously that the Golden ratio based ionic radii explain quantitatively the bond lengths in completely ionic as well as partially ionic bonds including hydrogen bonds. These ionic radii and covalent radii were shown to be additive in small as well as large molecules. This work shows that the published bond length data for a carbocation can also be explained using the covalent and Bohr radii and the Golden section of the ground state Bohr radius of carbon.
