Cation–pi interactionCation–pi bond – The cation-pi interaction is as much a chemical bond as the hydrogen bond, and consequently should be called as such. Whoop whoop pull up Bitching Betty | Averted crashes 21:22, 22 January 2012 (UTC)

  • Left a note about this at WT:CHEMISTRY. Jenks24 (talk) 08:50, 23 January 2012 (UTC)
  • Keep present name – the term interaction is common with these weak forces; other examples include pi-pi interactions (a.k.a. π–stacking) and dipole-dipole interactions. Further, the hydrogen bond is a special case in that it is unusually strong for an intermolecular interaction. If the hydrogen bond were discovered now I believe that it is likely that the word bond would not be used in its name, but the name is well established and isn't going to change. As a chemist, I would say that the connotations of the term 'bond' make it unsuitable for describing a cation-pi interaction. EdChem (talk) 11:05, 23 January 2012 (UTC)
And as an additional comment, the sources mostly use the current name only. --Extra 999 (Contact me) 11:30, 24 January 2012 (UTC)

SI Units[edit]

To keep within Wiki's Style Manual, SI units should really be used. I haven't made any changes since getting appropriate images could be tricky and I don't want parts of the article in Joules but still using the png and tif images ....

However, it ought to be fixed.
