The chapter is devoted to chemistry of chalcogen dications—quite an unusual type of chemical compounds, having cationic centres located at two directly connected atoms. The unique structure of these compounds impart them with reactivities that are remarkably different from those of other reactive intermediates. Harnessing this reactivity should lead to interesting practical applications and rapid development of this field in the future.
