Selenium compounds may form noncovalent interactions, so-called chalcogen bonds, with Lewis bases under certain conditions. In their Communication (DOI: 10.1002/anie.201704816), S. M. Huber and co-workers show that such chalcogen bond donors activate a benchmark reaction. Control experiments with non-selenated reference compounds confirmed the crucial role of the selenium substituent. The corresponding brominated halogen bond donor was somewhat less active.
