Aromatic compounds: A ring made up solely of metal atoms

The term aromaticity is a basic, long-standing concept in chemistry that is well established for ring-shaped carbon compounds. Aromatic rings consisting solely of metal atoms were, however, heretofore unknown.

A demonstration of substituent effects in anti-aromatic compounds

Circularly conjugated compounds with 4n+2 pi-electrons are known as aromatic compounds. They are generally stable and are found in our surroundings. Conversely, anti-aromatic compounds with 4n pi-electrons have been conventionally ...
