The synthesis, characterization and X-ray analysis of dichloro- and dibromo-borenium cations stabilized by a 4-membered carbene are reported. The ligand's structural changes, atypical for similar systems, were caused by coordination to electron deficient fragments and its CN2P ring strain. This journal is
