3D global aromaticity and a new [6N+2] aromaticity rule

Professor Wu Jishan’s research group recently reported a 3D fully conjugated diradicaloid cage and its aromaticity in different oxidation states. For the first time, they attained 3D global aromaticity for pi-conjugated systems and they also presented a new [6N+2] aromaticity rule for D3 symmetric molecular cages. Paper was published in Nature Chemistry. Click here to read the article.
