The molecular dimensions of the potent chemical carcinogen dibenzo[def,p]chrysene, also known as dibenzo[a,l]pyrene, have been determined by X-ray diffraction methods. This analysis shows that the molecule is considerably distorted so that it is non-planar with an angle of 27.6 degrees between the outermost rings and a widening of C-C-C bond angles in the… CONTINUE READING
