acyl species

Acyl intermediates include acyl anions, acyl radicals and acyl cations (synonym acylium ions) which are formally derived from oxoacidsRkE(=O)l(OH)m (l ≠ 0) by removal of a hydroxyl cationHO+ , a hydroxyl radical HO. or a hydroxyl anionHO , respectively, and replacement analogues of such intermediates. Acyl anions, radicals and cations can formally be represented by canonical forms having a negative charge, an unpaired electron or a positive charge on the acid-generating element of the oxoacid. Acyl anions. E.g.
Acyl radicals. E.g.
Acyl cations. E.g.
