Dewar Benzenoids Discovered In Carbon Nanobelts

preprint
submitted on 10.01.2020, 20:25 and posted on 13.01.2020, 21:40 by Magnus Hanson-Heine, David Rogers, Simon Woodward, Jonathan D Hirst
Here we report the discovery that isomers containing two Dewar benzenoid rings are the preferred form for several sizes of cyclacene. The predicted lower polyradical character and higher singlet-triplet stability that these isomers possess compared with their pure benzenoid counterparts suggests that they may be more stable synthetic targets than the structures which have previously been identified.
