A foiled carbene in organic chemistry is a special type of stabilized carbene due to the proximity of a double bond . This type of reactive intermediate is implicated in certain organic reactions. The positive interaction between carbene and double bond is only present in the singlet type and based on through-space electron transfer between the empty carbene p-orbital (LUMO) and filled alkene double bond p-orbitals (HOMO). The result is a three-center two-electron bond akin certain non-classical ions.
