Local and global aromaticity in a molecular carbon nanobelt: insights from magnetic response properties in neutral and charged species.


The formation of carbon nanobelt made exclusively from fused benzene rings has recently been achieved. Our results reveal an interesting shift from a local aromatic character constrained in each of the six aromatic Clar sextets (6π-electron circuit) to a global aromatic character in charged species (+2 and -2) involving the overall π-circuit from the… (More)
