An sp-hybridized molecular carbon allotrope, cyclo[18]carbon.

Abstract:

Carbon allotropes built from rings of two-coordinate atoms, known as cyclo[n]carbons, have fascinated chemists for many years, but until now they could not be isolated or structurally characterized, due to their high reactivity. We generated cyclo[18]carbon (C18) using atom manipulation on bilayer NaCl on Cu(111) at 5 Kelvin by eliminating carbon monoxide from a cyclocarbon oxide molecule C24O6 Characterization of cyclo[18]carbon by high-resolution atomic force microscopy revealed a polyynic ...
