We present the Raman spectra for [n]Cycloparaphenylenes ([n]CPPs) of different sizes. A plethora of Raman modes are observed in these spectra, including modes that are analogous to those of the carbon nanotubes (CNTs) such as G-band, as well as Raman peaks that are unique for carbon nanohoops. In addition, we have calculated the theoretical Raman spectra of… CONTINUE READING
