The largest aromatic ring: published in Nature Chemistry and highlighted in Chemistry World

A paper from Harry Anderson's group in Nature Chemistry (DOI: 10.1038/s41557-019-0398-3) shows that Huckel's simple 4n + 2 rule correctly predicts the aromatic ring currents in rings with up to 162 pi-electrons. The work is highlighted in Chemistry World. See also 'Behind the Paper' https://go.nature.com/30CS7pa. more........
