Lewis acid/Base Reaction Chemistries

Each of the 24 types of Lewis acid/base complexation can be mapped against well known types of reaction chemistry. For example, type 3 complexes are all "super acids" and Diels-Alder cycloaddition is associated with type 20 complexation.

This logic is general in two ways: firstly, each cell of the Lewis acid/base interaction matrix contains distinct and characteristic chemistry. Secondly, the matrix covers all of Lewis acid/base reaction chemistry space.
