A Twisted Nanographene Consisting of 96 Carbon Atoms

A Twisted Nanographene Consisting of 96 Carbon Atoms
Chi Kit Chan, Qian Miao, Zhifeng Liu, Kwan Yin Cheung
Three-dimensional nanocarbon structures with negative curvature have been proposed by embedding heptagons or octagons in the graphitic lattice, but are yet to be synthesized. In their Communication (DOI: 10.1002/anie.201703754), Q. Miao et al. describe a new type of twisted nanographene, which can be regarded as a segment containing structural information of such negatively curved nanocarbon structures. Consisting of 96 sp2 carbon atoms, this nanographene is twisted along two directions in the crystal.
