An adduct formed by electron-pair donation from a π-orbital into a σ-orbital, or from a σ-orbital into a π-orbital, or from a π-orbital into a π-orbital. For example:
Such an adduct has commonly been known as a 'π-complex', but, as the bonding is not necessarily weak, it is better to avoid the term complex.
