Research Highlight

Ref: C. Liu et al. Macrocyclic Polyradicaloids with Unusual Super-ring Structure and Global Aromaticity. Chem 2018, in press.

We describe the challenging synthesis of two macrocyclic polyradicaloids. They exhibit long-sought “annulene-within-an-annulene” super-ring structure and unusual global aromaticity with individual inner/outer rings following Hückel’s rule in singlet state and Baird’s rule in triplet state.
