Stereoisomerism, crystal structures, and dynamics of belt-shaped cyclonaphthylenes.


The chemistry of a belt-shaped cyclic array of aromatic panels, a so-called "nanohoop," has increasingly attracted much interest, partly because it serves as a segmental model of single-wall carbon nanotubes with curved sp(2)-carbon networks. Although the unique molecular structure of nanohoops is expected to deepen our understanding in curved π-systems… (More)
