Benzenoid polycyclic hydrocarbons with an open-shell biradical ground state.

Abstract

This Focus Review describes the recent progress, from both theoretical and experimental perspectives, on four types of benzenoid polycyclic hydrocarbons with an open-shell biradical ground state: 1) acenes, 2) periacenes and anthenes, 3) zethrenes, and 4) extended p-quinodimethane derivatives. These interesting molecules have provided excellent platforms to… (More)
