An exotic band structure of a supramolecular honeycomb lattice formed by a pancake π–π interaction between triradical trianions of triptycene tribenzoquinone

Abstract

A supramolecular honeycomb lattice was successfully formed by using triradical trianion species of triptycene tribenzoquinone (TT) which forms strong intermolecular π–π pancake bonds toward three directions. The crystal structure of Rb3TT·2H2O belongs to the hexagonal P6/m space group, the tight-binding band calculation of which reveals Dirac cones and flat bands.
