Mechanistic aspects of the methane conversion chemistry, particularly the role of pentacoordinate CH5+-type carbocationic intermediates, were also studied.
Dow was and is a major user of carbocationic chemistry, such as the Friedel-Crafts type manufacture of etylbenzene for styrene production.
(carbocationic) systems carbon can coordinate with five, six or even seven atoms or groups simultaneously and laid the foundation to what is now recognized as hypercarbon chemistry.
