Over the past 10 years, anion–pi interaction has been recognized as an important weak force
that may occur between anionic systems and electron-deficient aromatics. Lately, this
supramolecular contact has experienced a rapidly growing interest. The following Hot article by Patrick Gamez and co-workers highlights the tremendous progress achieved in the field by emphasizing three important studies involving anion–pi interactions published in 2010.
