n.
An anion in which carbon carries a negative charge and an unshared pair of electrons.

carbanion

(kɑːˈbænaɪən)
n
(Chemistry) a negatively charged organic ion in which most of the negative charge is localized on a carbon atom. Compare carbonium ion

We hypothesized that 1H-perfluoroalkanes (1HPFAs) would form as the presumed carbanion leaving group of the PFPiA molecules.
The key components of an MA system are electron deficient C=C double bonds (e.g., an acryloyl, the acceptor), acidic C-H bonds (as present in aceto-acetate and malonate moieties, the donor), and a base catalyst strong enough to abstract the proton of this C-H bond yielding a nucleophilic carbanion that can add to the double bond.

In the case of the Michael addition, the carbanion would react with Michael acceptors or [alpha],[beta]-unsaturated compounds to yield polyfunctionalised nitroderivatives [6].
The reason was that due to the great difference in temperature between the exterior and inside of oil shale sample, the condensation and aromatorization reactions, as well as decomposition of some minerals with carbanion were suppressed.
The radical IV is further reduced to form a benzylic carbanion V ([c.sub.2], Figure 2(b)).
A plausible mechanistic pathway proposed for the title compounds involves the generation of a carbanion at the active methylene group ([C.sub.4]-C[H.sub.2]) which is stabilized by coumarin ring [24].
Taking Scheme la as an example, the Michael addition starts with the deprotonation of BTA (nucleophile) by base or solvent such as NMP with a relatively high proton affinity (923.4 kJ [mot.sup.-1] (15)) used in this work (B:) to result in carbanion stabilized by its electron-withdrawing groups ([BTA.sup.[??]]).
Methylation was performed with potassium methyl-suphinyl carbanion and methyl iodide in dimethyl sulphoxide as described by Harris et al.
Highlights included the opening plenary lecture by Gregory Petsko, Brandeis University, entitled, "The Road to Resolution: A Structural Enzymologist's Adventures Beyond 1 Angstrom," and the plenary lecture by NSERC Gold Medalist Tito Scaiano, FCIC, University of Ottawa, entitled, "Carbanion Studies: From Drug Photostability to Carbanion Kinetics and New Photocages," on the final day of the conference.
