(Chemical Equation Presented) Alkoxycarbenium ions having no substituents on the cationic carbon have been accumulated as "cation pools" by the introduction of an ether group in an appropriate position. Intramolecular participation of the ether oxygen is suggested to be responsible for stabilization of the alkoxycarbenium ions.
