Consequence of  Ligand Bite Angle on  Bismuth Lewis Acidity

We present here a new concept of controlling the Lewis acidity at bismuth by tuning the ligand bite angle, utilizing the inferences obtained from electronic structure studies. Decreasing the ligand bite angle in the cationic bismuth complexes leads to a marked decrease in energy of the acceptor orbital, and this increases the Lewis acidity at bismuth, thus demonstrating that the ligand bite angle is an important parameter in main-group chemistry.
