Visualising aromaticity of bowl-shaped molecules

Author affiliations


Superposition of slices (planar maps of induced current density calculated within the ipsocentric pseudo-π model of electronic response to a magnetic field) gives a simple route to visual diagnosis of ring-current aromaticity in bowl-shaped molecules. Results are presented for currents in the recently synthesized indenocorannulene precursors of [60]fullerene.
