On Exo-Cyclic Aromaticity


The domain of aromaticity spans a wide range of molecules, from polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, heterocycles to all-metal systems. Here, in silico we demonstrate aromaticity in C2B2F4, extending beyond the limit of conventional aromatic molecules. This molecule gains the magic number of six π-electrons through an unusual electronic contribution from exo-cyclic atoms. The stability of the molecule is established through density functional, ab initio calculations as well as molecular dynamics simulation.
