The stability of certain molecules(1) containing an odd number of electrons has been explained on the basis of the formation of three-electron bonds. Evidence has now been obtained which substantiates the validity of a similar explanation for the stability of ClO2, and in particular for its lack of tendency to polymerize to Cl2O4.
