The nucleophilic substitution reaction of second order (SN2) at a silicon atom is scrutinized using snapshots along a pseudo-reaction coordinate, starting with an experimentally isolated phosphino-fluorosilane as a model for the ion-molecule complex and the corresponding silylphosphonium cation as a model of the product. It is crucial to combine different bonding descriptors from real and orbital space to understand the pseudo-reaction; they reveal different aspects based on the different sensitivity to dispersive, electrostatic and polar-covalent contributions to bonding.
