Scientists Build a Nanocage with Antiaromatic Walls

Figure 1. Chemical structure of an antiaromatic-walled nanospace. (a) construction of antiaromatic-walled nanospace. (b) X-ray crystal structure with a 3D NICS grid, showing magnetic deshielding experienced within the nanospace. Antiaromaticity effects becomes stronger in the order of yellow < orange < red color.

(Tokyo) Researchers at Tokyo Institute of Technology, the University of Cambridge, and the University of Copenhagen have built a self-assembled nanocage with a very unusual nanospace: Its walls are made of antiaromatic molecules, which are generally considered too unstable to work with. By overturning assumptions
