Among the more exotic examples of hydrocarbon compounds are molecules with structures made up exclusively of sp2-hybridized carbons. One of these classes of compounds is the dendralenes, a set of linear, branched polyenes. Chemists have previously prepared [3]dendralene through [8]dendralene, which embody three to eight radiating C=C bonds. Mehmet F. Saglam, Thomas Fallon, and Michael S. Sherburn of Australian National University and Michael N. Paddon-Row of the . . .
