Aromatic and antiaromatic ring currents in a molecular nanoring

Abstract:

Aromatic and antiaromatic molecules exhibit ring currents around their perimeters. Similar persistent currents are observed in metal rings, when the coherence length of the electrons is longer than the circumference of the ring. The relationship between these quantum mechanical phenomena is poorly understood, partly because they are studied in different size regimes: the largest aromatic molecules have diameters of about 1 nm, whereas persistent currents are found in rings with diameters of ...
